4th Annual Sweep the Hooch - April 12, 2014

 

This year’s Sweep the Hooch -- the largest one-day river cleanup in metro Atlanta -- delivered its greatest amount of trash totals since the event began four years ago.

Some 580 volunteers pulled 7.3 tons of refuse from in and around the Chattahoochee River. Dedicated volunteers were able to collect this volume of trash despite high water levels in some areas.

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK), together with the National Park Service and the Upper Chattahoochee
Chapter of Trout Unlimited
, organized the multi-site cleanup on April 12.

Walkers, waders and paddlers fanned out across 28 sites and spent half a day pulling trash and debris along vast sections of the river. An untold number of tires, plastic bottles, tennis balls, toys and other items were hauled away.
