Register today with family, friends and neighbors and be part of this record-setting tradition. The DuPage County River Sweep is a county-wide cleanup held each year. This event encourages citizens to improve local waterways by removing debris and litter from a section of stream or pond. Supplies, technical support, snacks, water and trash pokers will be provided by sponsoring organizations.
The River Sweep is organized by The Conservation Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving open space and natural lands, protecting rivers and watersheds, and promoting stewardship of the environment in northeast Illinois. Since the event was launched in 1991, more than 10,200 volunteers have removed nearly 3245 tons of garbage from DuPage County waterways. The DuPage County River Sweep is supported by the DuPage County Stormwater Management Department.
