On-site registration begins at 8am, with canoe and kayakers leaving for the western portion of River at 8:30a. All other volunteers will be transported to their locations by 9a. Headquarters for the cleanup will be at Westside Park in Muncie, off of White River Boulevard between Tillotson St bridge and Nichols St bridge. We will be meeting the shelters furthest to the west. Volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately by wearing clothes that can get dirty and wet. Please bring gloves if you have them.

If you register now, you should report to the Fast-Track Registration line the day of the cleanup. There you will verify your information for attendance.


About this event:

The annual White River Cleanup (WRC) has been responsible for removing over 96,000 pounds of trash and 600+ tires from our beautiful river in the past 10 years. It has drawn well over 2,500 volunteers in that time, making it the largest single volunteer event in Delaware County; last year alone saw over 400 volunteers! The WRC covers close to 15 miles of river from the Old Indiana Steel and Wire Plant all the way to Canoe Country in Daleville. The WRC is part of the larger White River Festival (learn more here: whiteriverfestival.org).

Volunteers walk the bank, river and land where possible removing debris from and around the river. When that is not possible, volunteers use canoes to navigate through the water, filling them up along the way with the debris they find.

The White River Cleanup is sponsored by the Stormwater Management Department and organized by Muncie-Delaware Clean & Beautiful.
