Record turnout for annual River Celebration and Cleanup

Record turnout  for annual River Celebration and Cleanup

The 18th annual River Celebration and Cleanup was a success by every measure. There were 50 cleanup sites (up from 30 sites in 2012) over greater Jacksonville. The numbers include 1,183 volunteers (also up from 1,002) who gave 3,442 hours on a Saturday morning, collecting 1,154 bags of trash from the river banks, storm drains and streets, in addition to 158 tires, six mattresses, three shopping carts, two bicycles and two dump trucks full of invasive plant species, among other oddities. People came out in organized groups or on their own to help keep our city and its neighborhoods beautiful. Of note, the four new Riverside/ Avondale check-in sites together tallied 453 volunteers
(38 percent) of the total volunteers.
