The 24th Annual Hillsborough River & Waterway Cleanup hosted by Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is quickly upon us. Please come join one of Tampa’s largest annual volunteer events, as did the 1300 volunteers at last year’s event. The day has a list of events, starting at 8 a.m. at Lowry Park for registration, and then dispersing to 40 different cleanup sites located throughout Hillsborough County until 11 a.m.

Following the clean up, all volunteers are encouraged to attend the Rally on the River, sponsored by Waste Management. A free picnic lunch will prepared by Sickles High School Culinary Program, as well as a live performance by Bobby & The Rockets. Rally on the River includes the following events Rollin’ on the River Regatta, trash formations, River Rat Challenge, Educational Booth, and Recover by the River-Recycles Day. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful put together these events to enhance the knowledge about recycling through enjoyable activities and to educate the residents of Hillsborough County. These events show the importance of recycling in a fun outlet. In addition, it shows how residents can make positive impacts not only in Tampa Bay but also in the environment.
