The New River Conservancy volunteers have already seen a high amount of trash and tires removed from the New River.
In 2022 alone we pulled 20,500 pounds of trash from West Virginia cleanups , 1238 pounds from North Carolina cleanups, and 2612 pounds from Virginia cleanups for a total of 24,350 pounds across the watershed from 16 cleanups.
With your help we have cleaned over 1,500 miles of river and removed over 14,000 tires.
With your help we have cleaned out and disposed of 500,000 pounds of trash. That’s the equivalent of 250 ’79 Volkswagen Beetles! OR. 40 African elephants! In trash. From our beautiful New River.
