The public is invited to volunteer at the 2019 Ohio River Sweep on Saturday, June 15. The Ohio River Sweep is a volunteer, riverbank cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River. Each year, volunteers from six states clean up litter along the shorelines of the Ohio River and many of its tributaries. 

People interested in volunteering can visit OhioRiverSweep.org to find a list of more than 100 cleanup locations. Trash bags are provided and each volunteer receives a free T-shirt.
