What to Bring

You are encouraged to bring your own reusable water bottle and trash pickers. Raritan Headwaters will provide trash bags, gloves, water and snacks! If you register after March 26th, please come prepared with your own gloves and trash bags.

What to Wear

This event is rain or shine, dress accordingly. No one is required to get into the stream. If you choose to pick up litter on land wear a hat, sturdy boots or shoes, and long-sleeved shirts and pants for tick protection. Stream depth varies across our stream cleanup sites and changes with the weather so if you plan on getting in the stream come prepared with rubber boots or waders.


On the morning of the cleanup, you will be greeted by your Site Coordinator at the designated meeting location. The site coordinator will have you sign-in and provide you with your trash bags, gloves, water, and snacks. The Site Coordinator will orient you to the site and explain the area to be cleaned up. When the stream cleanup is over, please bring your trash bags to the designated drop off location.

Kids are welcome to participate in this service project, but please keep a close eye on your children throughout the event because their safety is paramount.

Data Collection

This year Raritan Headwaters is asking you to collect data on the number of plastic bags and bottles you cleanup. Data sheets will be provided.
