Clean Up Day

On Clean Up Australia Day, more than 1 million people collected over 8,000 tons of trash. Now that is showing some initiative.

But we can also make a difference at home. Here is some info for those who live in the Hudson Valley in upstate NY:
Long Dock, Beacon, NY
Join Hudson Valley Pack and Paddle for this years volunteer cleanup on the Beacon Waterfront as part of Scenic Hudson's Great River Sweep. The Great River Sweep is an annual all-volunteer cleanup of the Hudson River watershed and for one week in April each year, hundreds of communities join to save our river. Hudson Valley Pack & Paddle's past cleanups have included the following locations: Long Dock, Beacon, three cleanups, the Wappingers Creek, two cleanups, Denning Point and the Fishkill Creek, two cleanups. We are very proud to have been able to remove over 300 cubic yards of trash, (about 8 big Dumpsters full) with the help of numerous volunteers over the last 7 years and with the support of Jim Popovich and Royal Carting

Or organize your own Hudson Valley Clean Sweep group!
