Removing trash from our rivers and watersheds is just part of the solution. The other big challenge is disposing of it in a way that diverts as much of it as possible from landfills.

Have you ever wondered what kind of trash we find in America’s rivers? Well, if so, you’re not alone! We started tracking things like pounds of trash removed and sh!t we find tracing back to the beginning (1998). Plastic bottles are, by far, the number one thing we remove (see more information on an upcoming volunteer event at the bottom of the page!) but there are a variety of other items that might make you go, hmmm.
