Locations

With the Great Miami River being 170 miles long, we have split the Clean Sweep in smaller sections, a northern section from the headwaters to Franklin, and a southern section from Franklin to the Ohio. Both sections complete the cleanup at differing times during the year, allowing you to participate in two seasons.

Please carefully note that the dates listed below . We are in the process of updating the 2019 information. We will post dates and locations for 2019 as soon as they are available, until then some locations will have 2017 or 2018 listed.
