Potoma Wayside cleanup

April 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Join Harper’s Ferry Paddling for a cleanup:

Sunday April 2nd at 12pm.

Potoma Wayside

Road side clean up or canoe/kayak (that you bring) clean up event.

The plan is to pick up road side trash anytime the week before 4/3. This is a VA Collection so anything along US 340 between the Potomac Bridge and WV state line is included. The river bank and the flood zone that is Potoma Wayside Park the US 340 Road side and the Banks of Piney Creek on the other side of 340 is the focus of this clean up. Anyone can collect trash in this area the week before the 4/3 bag it and set it in one of the collection locations and it will get hauled out. Setting a group date and time for those that would like to make an event out of it. Please if you use this takeout consider spending some time pulling out so trash that will end up in the river unless we remove it before it gets to the river. I’ll have bags for collection at site on day of event. Otherwise pleas bring a bag and fill it and set it at a collection site and it will be picked up.

River and Trail will open up parking on there lot to us. As well as supplying collection bags/and some man power.

I’ll have some reflective vests for roadside collectors. Will mark the two collection points the week before so if you go and collect during the week before you will know where to set out your collection.
