More About CleanSweep

CleanSweep is a smart-phone app and web-based dashboard designed to engage volunteers in cleaning up the Schuylkill River Watershed! These new tools make it easy for trash cleanup organizers to register and promote cleanup events, recruit volunteers, and record their results. The March 26th cleanup will begin will a demonstration on how to use the app.

CleanSweep is the perfect app to use during the 2022 Schuylkill Scrub from March 1 through May 31. The annual litter campaign encourages cleanup efforts within the Schuylkill River region along roads, streams, and parks.
