Allegheny River Clean-up

Allegheny River & Watershed Clean-up

Welcome to the Allegheny River & Watershed Clean-up website!

Since 2005, almost 5,500 volunteers have donated more than 48,000 hours and have removed about 1,000 cubic yards of trash from the watershed. They have pulled out television sets; microwave ovens; lawn chairs; refrigerators; 55-gallon drums; more than 17,500 tires and recycled almost 160,000 pounds of recyclable metal (that's almost 80 tons!). Countless bags have been filled with recyclable metal, glass, plastic and aluminum.

Your past and ongoing support of our watershed cleanup is greatly appreciated.

2023 (15th Annual) Allegheny River Clean-up!

Allegheny River

The 2023 (15th Annual) Allegheny River Clean-up was a fabulous success!

Almost 200 volunteers enjoyed very pleasant weatherover the course of the clean-up. In the end we accumulated more than 80 tires (and some of them were HUGE!), 13 cubic yards of garbage and (with the help of community contributions) 6,000 pounds of recyclable metal.

The watershed and the community are better for your efforts! Thank you!

We look forward to another great time next year for the Allegheny River Clean-up is SWEET 16!
