The Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup is not your typical litter removal event. As part of

this effort, volunteers collect data to identify the number and type of littered items, the

overall tonnage removed from each site and the amount of recyclable materials diverted.

This information is used to determine future needs, projects in the area and to create an

awareness of these needs within the community. As part of the International Coastal

Cleanup, data is shared with the Ocean Conservancy, Keep America Beautiful, as well as

local officials to help provide a local and global perspective.

This year's Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup will be held on

Saturday, September 20, 2014. Last year we removed well

over 60,500 pounds of litter and debris from over 75 locations

throughout Hillsborough County. We had over 4,000 volunteers

participate in the cleanup along the Hillsborough River, Alafia River

and other waterways.





Create a masterpiece of photographic art from the litter collected

at your cleanup site. Take your picture while volunteering, include

location and names of everyone in the photo, upload to Facebook,

Instagram or Twitter with #RiverRatChallenge and be sure to tag

Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful (@KeepTBB). For more information,

check out the River Rat Photo Social Media Challenge.
