Allegheny River Clean-up

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 almost 900 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.

2022 (18th Annual) Allegheny Reservoir Clean-up!

The 18th Allegheny Reservoir Cleanup was May 14th, 2022.

After a couple of years of 'small scale' cleanups, we finally got a (mostly) beautiful day and good sized group to work on the Allegheny Reservoir! It was one of those spring days that reminds us why we live, work and play in this beautiful part of the country.

Fifty-one volunteers spent a (mostly) beautiful spring day collecting more than 18 cubic yards of trash and 84 tires. Since its inception 1,201 volunteers have donated approximately 9,608 hours collecting 381 cubic yards of garbage and 15,342 tires from the Allegheny Reservoir!

Watch for in August for announcement of the 14th Annual Allegheny River Cleanup. Probably sometime between Sept 10th & Sept 17th.

Ever wonder what a River Clean-up might look like? Take a look!!
