Muncie-Delaware County White River Cleanup
September 21, 2019 - 8:00 am
A White River Festival Event
Join Muncie-Delaware Clean and Beautiful for the White River Clean-Up covering nearly 12 miles in Muncie and Delaware County. Lunch will be provided to all volunteers who attend the event and stay to 11am. Attendees are encouraged to dress to get wet and dirty! Please bring gloves if you have them.
Volunteers walk the bank, river and land where possible removing debris from and around the river. When that is not possible, volunteers use canoes to navigate through the water, filling them up along the way with the debris they find. We request that volunteers pre-register so we have a headcount for lunch and proper volunteer coverage for each site.
The White River Clean-Up covers close to 12 miles of river from the Old Indiana Steel and Wire Plant all the way to Canoe Country in Daleville. The White River Cleanup has been responsible for removing over 98,000 pounds of trash and 650+ tires from our beautiful river. It has drawn well over 2,700 volunteers over the years, making it the largest single-day volunteer event in Delaware County.
