Our Projects

Recycle Like a Rockstar


With the help of Xstream Cleanup, we are able to hand sort all of our bags through our Recycle Like A Rockstar event!

Many people ask, “What is the most common thing you find when cleaning the river?” By far, the most common item we pick up is the plastic bottle. The Living Lands & Waters (LL&W) team and volunteers pick up tens of thousands of plastic bottles every year in addition to hundreds of aluminum cans and glass containers.

These events happen on an as-needed basis--when the barge gets too full.

Currently no events planned, but follow our social media accounts to stay up to date for the next event! 

Check out our time-lapse video from our 2013 Recycle Like A Rockstar event!
