8 to 11:00 a.m.
In conjunction with National River Cleanup, the St. Johns River Cleanup was held from 8:00AM to 11:00AM on April 20, 2013. Click on the “Map of sites” link below for locations.
Pre-registered participants received a free T-shirt and reusable shopping bag. Plastic bags and gloves were supplied at each site.
Volunteers should wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes and bring work gloves. Rakes, shovels and trash grabbers may be helpful but not necessary. Steps should be taken to protect yourself from the sun. Bottled water is a good idea to bring.
Volunteers with vessels who can get on the river are welcome also. Tires, white goods (appliances, electronics) and hazardous waste will be piled separately from other trash.
The next cleanup will be held April 19, 2014. For more information concerning the event, contact Darrell Abrahamson at 386-736-5927, ext. 12424.
