CLEVELAND – It was a beautiful morning for a beautification project in Cleveland.
RiverSweep, Ohio’s largest one day cleanup effort, was out at a number of locations today as volunteers worked to clean up Johnston Mill Run, a tributary of Mill Creek that runs through Cleveland and Garfield Heights. RiverSweep is held every year on the day before Mother’s Day. In the 25 years it’s been running, 17,000+ volunteers have helped pick up and recycle over 23-thousand discarded tires and 490 tons of trash.
Right now, RiverSweep and its partners are working to develop a hiking and biking trail along Johnston Mill Run.
