Over the course of 28 years, CanalWay Partners has recruited 19,108 volunteers who have helped extract and recycle 24,044 illegally discarded tires and picked up for disposal 623 tons of trash. In 2017 alone, 750 volunteers removed over 39 tons of trash, including 319 tires. In 2015, we added a new graffiti clean-up component to RiverSweep to help beautify the area.
RiverSweep draws from across the area, students, activists and members of the business community all work together to clean our shared backyard.
