Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup Campaign

September 10 - September 16

From Saturday, September 9th, through Saturday, September 16th, WMEAC will provide supplies to volunteers throughout the communities of Grand Rapids, Wyoming, Grandville, Walker, Kentwood, and East Grand Rapids to remove trash from the tributaries and storm drains that feed into the Grand River as well as from the Grand River itself.

Streets and sidewalks accumulate litter which will be washed away into drains and waterways if we don’t stop it. In urban areas around the Grand River the “first flush” of pollution after a rainstorm can take less than 15 minutes to reach the river.

Removing litter from our environment becomes increasingly difficult and more expensive the farther it gets from its source. Taking action to remove the trash within your community will ensure a swimmable, drinkable, and fishable future for the waters we all share.

Sign up as an individual, a small group of friends or family, or as a business to take on this challenge!
