River Clean-ups

River clean-up 2009

Form 1996 until 2014, we hosted annual river clean-ups on and around the Pequannock River. These events have spanned diverse locations, targeting some major problems, including a dumping ground in the West Milford/Jefferson area, and sections of the river that can only be reached by boat. We get around!

Our main event was the summer clean-up held in the lower watershed through West Milford, Butler, Bloomingdale, Kinnelon, Riverdale and Pequannock. This clean-up was a joint undertaking with support from all these communities and enormous assistance from the Bloomingdale Clean Communities program.

Despite the unglamorous nature of the work, our participants had a rousing good time. And of course there is the personal satisfaction that comes with a job well done! For upcoming clean-up opportunuties, please watch our calendar for dates. See you there!
