Event description

Description

Project WASTE is one of the Bronx River Alliance's Citizen Science stewardship project focused on source-reduction of trash pollution. As of June 2016 there has been two installed trash booms that capture flotable trash in the Bronx River. This event is part of our hands-on outreach strategy which includes trash collection and assessment. As a volunteer you will count, assess and remove trash from the Muskrat Cove boom and tally the flotable trash into distinct categories. Information on the quantity, toxicity, material, and brands of trash will help to identify sources of pollution and to eventually inform communities, buisnessess and municipal officials.
