Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup


River Rat  Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup

September 20, 2014


The Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup is not your typical litter removal event. As part of

this effort, volunteers collect data to identify the number and type of littered items, the

overall tonnage removed from each site and the amount of recyclable materials diverted.

This information is used to determine future needs, projects in the area and to create an

awareness of these needs within the community. As part of the International Coastal

Cleanup, data is shared with the Ocean Conservancy, Keep America Beautiful, as well as

local officials to help provide a local and global perspective.



This year's Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup will be held on Bob LuceSaturday, September 20, 2014. Registration opens

August 1st and cleanup locations will be available then. Last year

we removed well over 60,500 pounds of litter and debris from over

75 locations throughout Hillsborough County. We had over 4,000

volunteers participate in the cleanup along the Hillsborough River,

Alafia River and other waterways.





Look for the Recycle Regatta, on Saturday, November 15, 2014

during America Recycles Day: The Tampa Bay Way.
