DuPage County River Sweep 2006

Recommended Posts

Join Us June 3, 2006 – 9:00 a.m. to noon


Annual DuPage River Sweep

First Saturday in June

DuPage County River Sweep is a county-wide stream cleanup held during American Rivers Month, the first weekend in June. The purpose of the River Sweep is to encourage citizens and volunteer groups to help "sweep our rivers clean" by picking up debris in and along our waterways. Groups select a section of stream and through their own coordination go out and remove litter from the area. Supplies and technical support will be provided by the sponsoring organizations to help you coordinate your group's efforts.


Sponsors for River Sweep 2006 include: Waste Management, Inc., DuPage County Stormwater Management Division, Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, Illinois EPA, Magid Glove & Safety, Inc.


Organized by the DuPage River Coalition, a volunteer project of The Conservation Foundation, more than 6,000 volunteers have removed nearly 170 tons of garbage from DuPage County streams since 1991.


The DuPage River Sweep is part of the Illinois Rivers Rescue Weekend
