The 15th Annual Fall Waterways Cleanup


New Date - Saturday, Oct 17th!

When: Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 

Where: Throughout the Roanoke Valley and Botetourt County

Time:  Cleanup -  8:30am to 11:30am

Picnic Celebration: Cancelled - Come to Go Fest instead!!


On Saturday, October 17th, 2015 volunteer teams from all over the Roanoke Valley will join forces to remove trash from our streams, creeks and rivers and their vicinities. Clean your favorite spot along a stream, tributary or river (or get to  know a new one). Since 2001, Fall Waterway volunteers have collected over 250 tons of litter and countless tires from our waterways. Commonly found items include bottles, cans, cigarette butts, bait cans, and plastic bags as well as some more unusual items such as bikes, a desoto hubcap, diapers, a full furniture suite, toys, refridgerators, and more.


We will not be able to have our picnic celebration this year, but we will be at Go Fest! Come on down after your cleanup and enjoy all the amazing activities, food, music and more at Go Fest. Visit us at our booth where we will have information and activities. See the Go Fest Schedule here!


New teams are welcome! After the storms, there will be more storm debris to clean up. Please join in by registering your team today. This is a "surf and turf" event so you may choose to work in your neighborhood, park or special site if you can't work near a stream or river.  We don’t want small fries on the rivers but they can help in a park or by a small stream. Supplies are provided. Register online or download a registration form and mail or email in to the CVC.


Thanks in advance for being part of the team that keeps our Valley, streams and rivers clean!  We couldn't do it without our fantastic, dedicated volunteers.
