In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Annual ‘Sweep Saturday’ to help clean up Ohio River

The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission is holding their annual sweep Saturday.

City leaders are asking for your help this weekend cleaning up the Ohio River.

The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation is holding their annual “Sweep Saturday.” Organizers say it’ll reduce the amount of waste going to the oceans.

“It’s an event for everybody. It’s an event for somebody who wants to try it out for the first time,” Lisa Cochran, Communications Coordinator, explains. “It’s a great event for community groups, church groups, school groups who might be meeting during the summer.”

Interested in helping? All you need to do is show up.

Volunteers will be given gloves and trash bags.

You’ll also get a free t-shirt too.
