Do your part to clean up the Connecticut River

HOLYOKE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Do your part to help clean up the Connecticut River! Seth and Lauren took part in the Annual Source to Sea River Cleanup! Seth was able to help a group of volunteers dig out a boat out of the middle of the river!

  • At Jones Ferry specifically, there were over 30 bags of trash, 2 shopping carts, a fiberglass boat frame, and 9 tires found in the 2 day event.
  • The Connecticut River Watershed Council uses trash info from groups to work all year long on keeping trash out of our rivers in the first place – things like tire/mattress/appliance take-back programs from producers, more/better recycling of plastic bottles/bags, banning Styrofoam dock floats, etc.
