The 14th Annual Fall Waterways Cleanup

The Clean Valley Council needs your help to clean up the Valley! Use this link to register -

Register Online Here

When: Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Where: Throughout the Roanoke Valley and Botetourt County

Time: Cleanup - 8:30am to 11:30am

Picnic Celebration 11:30 - 1:30pm

On Saturday, October 4, 2014, volunteer teams from all over the Roanoke Valley will join forces to remove trash from our streams, creeks and rivers and their vicinities. Clean your favorite spot along a stream, tributary or river (or get to know a new one). In 2010, nearly 780 volunteers collected 31 tons of trash and 355 tires! Volunteers found hoards of bottles, cans, cigarette butts and plastic as well as many other items such as an animal skull, bikes, a desoto hubcap, bait cans, diapers, a full furniture suite, toys, tires and more.

An after cleanup celebration will be held at Wasena Park. Our sponsors will be supplying food, drink, and great music!

Please join in by registering your team today. This is a "surf and turf" event so you may choose to work in your neighborhood, park or special site if you can't work near a stream or river. We don’t want small fries on the rivers but they can help in a park or by a small stream. Supplies are provided. Register online or download a registration form and mail or fax in to the CVC.

Thanks in advance for being part of the team that keeps our Valley, streams and rivers clean! We couldn't do it without our fantastic, dedicated volunteers.
