Brief Description of Event: 
The 28th annual Great Kanawha River Cleanup, sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP), is set for Saturday, Sept. 9 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Cleanup sites include Winfield Beach, St. Albans Roadside Park, the South Charleston boat ramp, and Kanawha Falls at Glen Ferris. Other clean-up sites could be added as the day of the event nears. This event brings together local volunteers to remove litter from the banks of the Kanawha River. Each year, tons of trash are collected and disposed of properly. Those wishing to volunteer for this year’s cleanup are urged to register with the WVDEP so enough supplies can be obtained for each cleanup location. The WVDEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP) will supply bags and gloves for volunteers and will arrange for trash to be hauled away. All volunteers also will receive a T-shirt.
