Volunteers Needed for April 22-30 2023 Upper Delaware Litter Sweep

NARROWSBURG – Volunteers and sponsors are needed for the 3rd Annual Upper Delaware Litter Sweep that will take place in every Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River corridor community starting on Earth Day, April 22, and running through April 30.

Participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt; supplies to use including safety equipment, bags, and pickers; and disposal information for their collected trash.

The Upper Delaware Council (UDC) will work with designated Litter Leaders in the Towns of Hancock, Fremont, Delaware, Cochecton, Tusten, Highland, Lumberland, and Deerpark (NY); and Buckingham, Manchester, Damascus, Berlin, Lackawaxen, Shohola, and Westfall Townships (PA) to coordinate a series of land-based cleanups.

Anyone willing to help provide labor or services should contact Ashley Hall-Bagdonas at (845) 252-3022 or and provide the following information:

  • Your name(s), email, and a phone number; and
  • Where in the river valley you would like to focus your clean-up efforts.

The appropriate Litter Leader for that community team will then reach out to confirm local pick-up dates, locations, and other arrangements.

Please note that the 3rd Annual Upper Delaware Litter Sweep is wholly funded by donations from partners, businesses, and those who love the river corridor. The UDC provides administrative support services.

Needs include ordering approximately 300 safety-colored t-shirts with a fun new turtle logo designed by Maggie Clauss from local company Platform Industries for volunteer team building, advertising, and purchase of litter pick-up equipment and supplies.

Individual and business sponsors at any level of $50 or more who contribute by April 15 will be recognized in UDC publicity outreach and its tri-annual newsletter, “The Upper Delaware.”

Donations via credit cards may be made via a ‘Donate Now’ button on the UDC website: Checks can be mailed to: Upper Delaware Council, P.O. Box 192, Narrowsburg, NY 12764, or monetary donations dropped off at the 211 Bridge Street office. Please indicate that the donation is for the 2023 Litter Sweep.
