Great Kanawha River Cleanup in 25th year
Friday, September 5, 2014 - 01:43 Updated 51 weeks ago Edited from a Press Release
Cleanup sites include Winfield Beach, St. Albans Roadside Park, the South Charleston boat ramp, Magic Island in Charleston and Kanawha Falls at Glen Ferris. This event brings together local volunteers to remove litter from the banks of the Kanawha River. Each year, tons of trash are collected and disposed of properly. The first cleanup in 1990 attracted close to 100 volunteers, who removed everything from an abandoned and sunken towboat to appliances and automobiles.
Those wishing to volunteer for this year’s cleanup are urged to register with the DEP so enough supplies can be obtained for each cleanup location. The DEP’s REAP program (Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan) will supply bags and gloves for volunteers and will arrange for trash to be hauled away. All volunteers also will receive a T-shirt.
For more information or to register to volunteer, contact Travis Cooper at 304-926-0499 ext. 1117 or email: Travis.L.Cooper@wv.gov
