The Great Lakes Alliance Adopt a Beach Program & the Ohio River Sweep Project

The Ohio River Sweep is the annual, volunteer cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River. Volunteers from the six states, that border the Ohio River, remove litter at multiple locations along the Ohio River and many of its tributaries. Since 1989, this award-winning cleanup for the Ohio River has been organized by ORSANCO, FORE, and the environmental protection agencies from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The volunteers for the Ohio River Sweep have made tremendous progress cleaning the Ohio River. Yet, litter continues to be a global problem. Volunteers make a positive impact in the entire Ohio River Basin by participating in the Ohio River Sweep. Free kits that include gloves, bags, pr materials, information for data collection on trash clean-up on beaches and waterways are available here:
