2023 Ohio River Sweep on the Hocking
A local trash pick-up. Keep our river clean!
The Athens Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce that our 2023 Ohio River Sweep on the Hocking was a great success! Taking place on Saturday, August 26, 2023, the Sweep had 73 volunteers come out to collect trash and recyclables in an effort to keep our river clean. Volunteers collected 51 bags of landfill trash, 30 bags of recyclable materials and one tire from 3.3 miles of the Hocking River floodplain. Thanks so much to all those that came out to brave the humidity and get this job done!
The Athens Soil and Water Conservation District would also like to thank our collaborating partners: the City of Athens, City/County Health Department, Ohio University’s Office of Sustainability, Hocking Conservancy District, and the Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission. Their efforts made this event possible.
