Check out specific location details (time and meeting location)

In 2017, at the first Protect Wisconsin Waterways Clean-Up, we had three clean-up locations and 30 volunteers helping clean up the Rock River and connected waterways. More recently, our Clean-Up included nine locations and nearly 200 volunteers across all locations! Please join us in cleaning up the Rock River and other area waterways on September 17, 2022.

From picking up basic trash like aluminum cans and wrappers to more unique items – children’s bikes, plastic toys, shoes, a TV, bike and car tires, and a parks and recreation barrier – volunteers have fun while making a huge splash in the environment and community!

How can we make an even bigger impact in 2022?

With nine clean-up locations again this year, Protect Wisconsin Waterways hopes to engage even more volunteers! Waterway clean-up locations are spread out across the Rock River Stormwater Group member communities, including the City of Beloit, Town of Beloit, Janesville, Milton, Whitewater, Fort Atkinson, Watertown, Beaver Dam, and Waupun.
