Please join us for the 2021 Rock River Coalition, Ball Corp and River Network Cleanup Event August 1-7, 2021!
We are excited to host this event and help clean up the communities we live, work, and play in! This cleanup is taking place over the week of August 1-7, 2021, in your local communities as well as in Fort Atkinson. You will have the entire week from August 1-6 to collect trash and recycling, and vie for prizes, using the Litterati App on your electronic device! Then, on Saturday, August 7, join us in person at Ralph Park to collect trash and recycling in downtown Fort Atkinson and enjoy food, music, and fun afterwards! This event will take place rain or shine!
Details are as follows:
- From August 1-6, 2021 you can collect trash and recycling within your communities. We understand that not everyone lives or works in Fort Atkinson, but we believe that having the ability to utilize the Litterati App to work within your local surroundings is a great way to make an even bigger impact! If you have a personal watercraft and would like to do this by water, we definitely encourage you to do so! After you download the Litterati App to your personal electronic device, you will be able to record the type of litter you picked up, the location, and snap a picture if you choose!
- On Saturday, August 7, 2021 join us in person at Ralph Park from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. to collect trash in downtown Fort Atkinson. We will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the corner shelter of Ralph Park (look for signs) for check-in and to collect your gloves and trash bags (provided). If you would like to bring your personal watercraft to clean up the river, we encourage you to do so! We will then disperse throughout downtown Fort Atkinson and collect any litter or recycling you see. We will reconvene at 11:00 a.m. at Ralph Park to drop off our bags and enjoy some food, music, and fun!
What to bring: yourself and anyone who loves the environment and wants to help, a positive attitude, a reusable water bottle, and a mask if you prefer
What to wear: comfortable clothing, closed toed shoes, sunscreen, a hat and a mask if you prefer
