Event Details

Sweep the Hooch logoBack for the tenth year, Sweep the Hooch is your chance to walk, wade, or paddle as we come together to clean up the river we all depend on.

Each year, hundreds of volunteers remove tons of trash from the Chattahoochee River and its tributaries as part of Sweep the Hooch.

In honor of this watershed-wide trash cleanup turning ten years old, we’re asking for everyone’s help to make the biggest impact on our river yet! Whether you’re a volunteer or just want to give back to the river that gives us so much, your support can make a difference.

For every $10 donated, CRK is able to remove one pound of trash from our waterways. In 26 years of keeping watch over our waters, CRK has removed more than two million pounds of trash and tires. That’s equal to 25 full 18-wheeler tractor-trailers of trash. CRK and loyal volunteers removed 50 tons of trash and tires in just 2019 alone.

So many of us depend on this crucial resource for clean drinking water, beautiful recreational activities, and more. Please consider becoming a fundraiser or donating to support a trash-free Chattahoochee River.
