The Delaware River and Bay Dash for the Trash and Raritan River Rubbish Roundup are week-long stream clean-up events along the Delaware and Raritan Rivers and their tributaries to commemorate the seventh annual National AmeriCorps Week. AmeriCorps Week recognizes the commitment of AmeriCorps members and alumni by highlighting their extraordinary impact across the nation every day. AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 men and women in intensive service each year through thousands of nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Last year over 400 volunteers collected 536 bags of trash and recyclables.  This year we are excited to expand our cleanups efforts into the Raritan Basin.
