2015 Cleanup Weights, Pics & Survey!

Hello River Stewards!

On behalf of We Love Clean Rivers and Clackamas River Basin Council, we’d like to send a big THANK YOU to 250+ volunteers that joined us this year for the 13th Annual Down the River Clean Up on the Clackamas River.

Please help us out by taking 2-minutes to complete this short SURVEY by Tuesday Oct 6th. 

This year, with your help, we cleaned up nearly 2 TONS (3,800 lbs.) of trash from the Clackamas River and recycled 82% of that trash. That’s the highest recycle rate we’ve had in 13 years – amazing!

The breakdown of how much trash (in TONS) was collected from each of the 4 river sections is:

  • McIver to Barton – .30
  • Barton to Carver – .69
  • Carver to Riverside – .50
  • Riverside to Clackamette – .41
