Allegheny River & Watershed Clean-up

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

Since 2005, almost 5,000 volunteers have donated more than 40,000 hours and have removed about 880 cubic yards of trash from the watershed. They have pulled out television sets; microwave ovens; lawn chairs; refrigerators; 55-gallon drums; more than 16,900 tires and more than 152,000 pounds of recyclable metal (that's more than 76 tons!). Countless bags have been filled with recyclable metal, glass, plastic and aluminum.
