Saturday, September 21, 2024

Save the date and join our 200+ volunteers on Saturday, September 21 between 8 AM-Noon in Waupun, Beaver Dam, Watertown, Fort Atkinson, Milton, Whitewater, Janesville, and Beloit. Location and time details are linked below!

The City of Monroe will have their clean-up event the following weekend on Saturday, September 28, 2024.

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 2023 Clean-Up included nine locations and over 250 volunteers across all locations! Please join us in cleaning up the Rock River and other area waterways on September 21, 2024 or September 28, 2024.

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 2024?

With TEN clean-up locations this year, Protect Wisconsin Waterways hopes to engage even more volunteers! Help us celebrate the second annual Wisconsin Stormwater Week by participating in the 2024 clean-up.

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 on Saturday, September 21, 2024. The City of Monroe will also have a clean-up on Saturday, September 28, 2024.
