Broome County Riverbank Cleanup

October 16, 2021
(Rain date: October 17th)

How does it work?

Do you have a group that would like to help clean our waterways? The EMC will work with your group to select a site and arrange trash collection on the day of the cleanup. We will also provide you with some basic supplies including trash bags and gloves (these are vinyl exam gloves, not heavy duty work gloves). If you are an individual that would like to participate, please register and we can arrange for you to join one of the other groups.

Here are the steps for your group to join us in cleaning our streams and rivers:

  • Organize your team
  • Designate a captain who will work with EMC staff and coordinate volunteers in your group.
  • Register your team.
  • Work with staff to confirm a cleanup location.
  • Pick up supplies the week of the cleanup.
  • Head out and clean on the day of the Riverbank Cleanup!

Any questions can be directed to the EMC at or 607-778-2414.
