Rock River Basin Clean-Up

Sat, September 17, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rock River Coalition is joining the Rock River Stormwater Group for our annual Rock River Clean-up on Saturday, September 17th! Protect Wisconsin Waterways Clean-Up is an annual event to help clean up litter and debris from the Rock River and connected waterways. From picking up basic trash like aluminum cans and wrappers to more unique items – children’s bikes, plastic toys, shoes, a TV, bike and car tires, and a parks and recreation barrier – volunteers have fun while making a huge splash in the environment and community!

Clean-up locations are spread out throughout the basin. Most events are 8am-11am, though they vary by location. You can find a meet-up of volunteers in the following locations:

  • Waupun
  • Milton
  • Beaver Dam
  • Janesville
  • Watertown
  • Town of Beloit
  • Fort Atkinson*
  • City of Beloit
  • Whitewater

Register for the event and find specific details about your location with the link below. Register early to receive a free event t-shirt at the Clean-Up! (Must register by August 17th to guarantee a shirt).
