Thank you to all who volunteered, sponsored, and stepped up as team leaders in 2021!

The trash near roadways was significant, and we are grateful for your stewardship to remove it to beautify the valley, as well as ensure it doesn’t reach our waterways! Whether you have been a longtime volunteer or team leader, participated for your first time, or were one of our many local and regional sponsors, thank you!

Check out this recap video from the 2021 cleanup on May 1. 

Every year, dedicated volunteers take part in one of the largest coordinated give-back efforts in our county; the Community Pride Highway Cleanup. Focused on clearing trash from our roadways, which are very close in proximity to sensitive waterways and riparian areas, these teams work hard to keep our ecosystems cleared of debris.

From its inception in the early 2000’s, in which nearly 50 tons of trash had accumulated and was removed, great strides have been made to reduce littering, and now an average of 10-15 tons of debris is removed annually.

Volunteers consist of school groups, corporate teams, residents and visitors alike, and we encourage anyone who is interested to join in the fun! Please email cleanup@erwc.org to confirm your segment, sign up for a new one or join an existing team.

Registration is required, as teams are assigned specific roadway sections, and planning is required to ensure safety and event regulations are observed. Those that cannot attend, but want to support the event should email development@erwc.org to learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
