DuPage County River Sweep 2023

Saturday, May 20, 2023

The annual DuPage County River Sweep is a county-wide self-coordinated stream cleanup held each spring. The purpose of the one-day event is to encourage volunteer groups to help “sweep our rivers clean” by picking up debris in and along local waterways.  

Since 1991 over 14,000 volunteers have participated in this annual clean-up and have removed nearly 285 tons of trash,  but each year there’s always more to clean!  Everyone is welcome! 

The Conservation Foundation has declared the entire month of May as DuPage River Sweep Month and is encouraging everyone (regardless of what county you’re in) to get out and show some love to a waterway near you!
