We would like to announce that Keep New Hanover Beautiful (an affiliate in good standing of Keep America Beautiful) and Cape Fear River Watch have joined forces effective immediately.
KNHB will now be physically situated at the main office of CFRW, which is 617 Surry St., Wilmington, NC and both organizations will continue to operate as before working independently and together at times.
Please keep watching our respective social media sites for more exciting events.
Check out the CFRW Monthly Clean Up schedule here, we partner up to clean every 2nd Saturday of the month! We are able to recycle most of what we collect thanks to Pink Trash!
Our biggest Clean Up of the year was a huge success! Over 300 people came out and collected 1,236 lbs of trash from our community! It was great timing to remove that trash before Matthew had time to spread it around! We covered 21 miles spread out over 8 locations. Our grand total for number of trash items collected was: 24,563 with 44% of those items being cigarette butts. We want to thank all of the volunteers that helped us make this happen!
Thank you to Pink Trash for recycling items collected at clean ups!
