The 15th Annual Colorado Cleanup will be held on Sept. 7, 2019. The cleanup is done in three sections. Start times for each section will be: Fruita – 9 AM, Grand Junction – 9:30 AM, Palisade – 10 AM ready to launch. Shuttle service will be provided. The Colorado River Cleanup is an on the water cleanup where trash collected on the banks is floated down river to the takeout then disposed of.
The Colorado River Cleanup is a time when the community comes together to cleanup the Colorado River. This is not only a time when we actually pull out tires and couches from the river but a time to raise awareness and stewardship for our rivers and water we use and enjoy every day. As a participant you would provide your own boat or board, Paddle/oars, PFD, and effort. Some other good things to have include: gloves, bucket for sharp items, wire cutters, Old tarp for your boat, and a safety first mindset. The Colorado River Cleanup will provide: trash bags, state park tags, t-shirt, and an appreciation BBQ & prizes after the cleanup.
