22nd Annual Hamilton County White River Cleanup

HamCoCleanup-300The second Saturday in September brings hundreds of people to the White River in Hamilton County to help clean up decades of abuse.

In 1995, a few friends came together in a stretch of river in downtown Noblesville to make a difference in their community.  At the time, it was very difficult to canoe or fish anywhere on the river without running into some kind of trash. Tires, hot water heaters, cars and anything you can imagine had been dumped into the river.  This group of guys just decided to start removing all the stuff they came across and unknowingly started a lasting legacy for our community; for over two decades this tradition has continued.

In the first 20 years of the event, more than 400 tons — that’s more than 800,000 pounds of trash — have been removed from the Hamilton County stretch of the White River.

Register today to help with the 2016 Cleanup, taking place Saturday, September 10 from 8 a.m. to noon.
