Source to Sea Cleanup Trash Tally

Your trash data will help stop the flow of trash into rivers! Submitting a tally of the trash you find is one of the most important parts of the Source to Sea Cleanup. Your data helps show the scope of the trash problem so we can focus solutions where they’re needed most.

Submit your Trash Tally within 1 week of your Cleanup.Choose the method that works best for you: 

  1. Use the Clean Swell app on your mobile device. Make sure your location services are turned on so the app can detect that you’re collecting trash in the Connecticut River region and be counted toward CRC’s trash totals. If you use the app, you do NOT need to also submit the trash tally form below.
  2. Download the paper Trash Tally Form to fill out during your cleanup. After your cleanup, enter your data with the online form below (preferred) or mail to: CRC, 15 Bank Row, Greenfield, MA 01301.  

If your group finds an item that may have been used in a crime (a gun, safe, cash register or similar item), please report it to the nearest law enforcement agency.

If you have questions, please contact Stacey Lennard, Cleanup Coordinator, at cleanup@ctriver.org or 413-772-2020 x211. Thank you!
