RiverSweep HQ is at Riverside Middle School, 13 Fairground Road, Springfield VT. Trash bags and work-gloves are provided unless you choose to BYO. Come to the HQ as early as 8 AM, pick your cleaup site, and head out with a buddy. Return by 11AM to help tally and photograph your trash, wash hands, pick up your free commemorative “thank you” tee shirt, and enjoy a free simple lunch (usually grilled hot dogs).
Bring a water bottle, sun protection, and insect repellent; and mind the banks for poison ivy, check for ticks, all the usual safety precautions.
Volunteers from area schools target several upstream sites in the weeks prior to the RiverSweep; we clean several miles of river bank and engage roughly 200 volunteers over the course of the summer and fall.
Sign up here to volunteer with your local cleanup. Bringing friends and family with you? Please register each volunteer separately!
