County-Wide Cleanup Campaign: September-November

Did you know storm drains carry runoff to local waterways?  By keeping our streets clean, we’re also keeping our streams clean!

Join the hundreds of Rockland County residents who will remove tons of litter from our streets, parks and waterways and help make our communities cleaner, healthier and more beautiful.

Head out on your own or get together with friends. Join forces with your school, company, religious or civic group. You can take part in one of the larger Group Cleanup Events scheduled in your area – it’s a great way to meet your neighbors.
