2020 Ohio River Sweep Statistics

During 2020, the Ohio River Sweep responded to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and creatively redesigned the Ohio River Sweep and introduced the Mini-Sweep format. Mini-Sweeps provided an opportunity for small groups of 10 people or fewer to make a big impact on waterways in their community.  The Mini-Sweep format was a success! The Mini-Sweep season occurred between July 31 – November 15, 2020.
During that season:

  • 75 Mini-Sweeps were hosted in five states.
  • 723 people attended a Mini-Sweep.
  • 22,780 pounds of litter were collected. (estimated weight)
