River clean-ups are a fun and rewarding experience! MyRWA typically hosts or partners with other organizations to participate in spring-time river clean-ups. If you would like to host a river clean-up please contact us and we’ll be sure to help spread the word!
THINKING ABOUT ORGANIZING A RIVER CLEAN-UP?
Here are some things to consider: You’ll need gloves, trash bags, a dumpster or way to dispose of the garbage collected (often the DPW will assist), hand sanitizer and lots of volunteers.
Volunteers are needed in West Medford for an ongoing monthly clean-up of the Lower Mystic Lake area. Join a dedicated group of neighbors who take turns cleaning up. Contact Barbara to get involved!
Check in with the Friends of the Mystic River, a Medford-based community organization, who often organize river cleanups.
