26th Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup TRASH-A-THON

Join the Trash-A-Thon and contribute to the Trash Free Potomac Watershed Initiative’s efforts to solve our area’s serious litter problem. Local governments, businesses, and community groups are committed to this movement, but we need the support of watershed citizens like you to succeed!

Structured like a walk-a-thon, participants ask family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor their clean-up efforts. All proceeds go towards the 26th Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup and the year-round efforts of the Trash Free Potomac Watershed Initiative, which works to get the institutions, infrastructure, and policies in place to see a lasting reduction in litter.
