Rocky River Cleanup 2021
Saturday, June 5th
10am to Noon
Join us in our decade-and-a-half tradition of the Rocky River Clean-Up!
This year our clean up will be a bit different, we'll be gathering in small groups under 10, you can participate on your own remotely using the app Litterati (participate in our Litterati challenge anytime from Sunday May 30th - Saturday June 12th, see details below) and sadly we'll be skipping our traditional cook-out.
All volunteers that gather in small groups must register beforehand online- registration link to follow (check out our Event Page here)
Volunteers also must complete a release form (see relates resources section) when signing into the event. Children under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a release form.
Dress for the weather and wear long sleeves, pants and boots. A first aid station will be located at the staging area.
All trash collected will be recorded and entered into a database for improving ocean and waterway health.
All participants who sign in on the day-off or participate in our Litterati challenge will be automatically enrolled in a raffle to win one of our RRWC T-shirts, a RRWC metal water bottle, or other great prizes!
More details to follow- check back soon!
Help us fight litter by tracking what you pick up with Litterati!
Please join our Virtual Cleanup Challenge on Litterati, a mobile app that tracks litter collection by allowing users to photograph, upload and tag litter in their area.
How does it work? Use the free Litterati app on your mobile device to join our challenge called "Rocky River Clean Up 2021". In the app, you will photograph each piece of litter you pick up before properly discarding it and tag it to record valuable information about the litter being kept from our rivers.
How to participate:
Download the free Litterati app on your mobile device using the App Store or Google Play. Open the app, click “I’m New.”
Review and Agree to the terms.
You will be asked, “Do you have a challenge code?” Enter the code 750912 and click “Join.”
The app will immediately open to the in-app camera. Click the top left down arrow to your “Community” and the main menu.
Next, you need to “Claim Your Account” (learn how to) to save your progress and tracked litter and access all tools and data. Without claiming your account, your data may not be saved to our challenge. This data is important to helping map litter in our community.
Make sure your phone’s settings allows the Litterati app to access your location and camera while using the app.
From May 30th to June 12th (one week before and after our in-person date of June 5th), collect as much litter as you can using Litterati to take a picture of each item AND tag the type of trash it is.
For extra help on how to use Litterati, to watch how-to videos, and learn tips and tricks.
What does this do? We use the data gathered through this app to know what kinds of objects are being tossed out in different areas, which allows us to market solutions and education more effectively.
