Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful presents the
25th Annual Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup
sponsored by Wells Fargo
followed by the Rollin’ on the River Rally
on October 20, 2012.
Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup
Cleanup locations were available throughout Hillsborough County. Thousands of volunteers participated in the cleanup along the Hillsborough River, Alafia River and other waterways and then went to Lowry Park for the Rollin' on the River Rally on Saturday, October 20, 2012.
As part of the Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup, data is collected from the event including the number and type of littered items, the overall tonnage removed and the amount of recyclable material diverted from each site. This information is used to determine future needs and projects in the area and create an awareness of these needs within the community. Data is shared with the International Coastal Cleanup, Keep America Beautiful, as well as local officials to help provide a local and global perspective.
Rollin’ on the River Rally
Volunteers were welcomed at Lowry Park for the Rollin’ on the River Rally featuring the Recycle Regatta, River Rat Team Challenge, live music, free food, and environmental educational booths. Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers for helping us to Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful!
