Project WASTE: Trash Boom
Meet at Woodlawn Metro North Parking Lot: East 233rd street near Webster ave

Project WASTE (Water and Street Trash Elimination) is one of the Bronx River Alliance's Citizen Science stewardship project focused on source-reduction of trash pollution. This event is part of our hands-on outreach strategy which includes trash collection and assessment.

As a volunteer you will count, assess and remove trash from the Muskrat Cove boom and tally the flotable trash into distinct categories. Information on the quantity, toxicity, material, and brands of trash will help to identify sources of pollution and to eventually inform communities, buisnessess and municipal officials

Free, registration required available
