Thank you for helping to make the 2022 Beach & Riverside Cleanup such a success!

SOLVE celebrated our annual statewide Beach and Riverside Cleanup, in partnership with the Oregon Lottery, on September 17th, 2022! Over 3,000 volunteers teamed up across Oregon to pull invasives and plant natives. They showed up along the coast and all across our waterways to pick up litter. Oregonians, once again, put their energy to work to steward this lovely state. Thanks to our incredible partners and sponsors, we were able to support 145 projects in the month of September!  


Stay tuned for the final report to drool over all the stats! Until then, check out the map below showing all of the wonderful places that are now cleaner, greener, and safer as a result of the Beach and Riverside Cleanup 2022!

2021 Results for the Beach & Riverside Cleanup 

Thank you Volunteers, Partners, and Sponsors! 

SOLVE celebrated its annual Beach & Riverside Cleanup, in partnership with the Oregon Lottery on September 25th, 2021. Volunteers pulled ivy and dug out blackberry vines from trails and parks. They came out to the beach, bringing their friends and family to help pick up after the summer crowds. Volunteer leaders shared their connection to Oregon’s special places, and parents showed their children how to make a difference safely. We all came together to take care of Oregon's watersheds, but instead of a one-weekend event this year projects around Oregon were supported for three weekends between September 18th and October 2nd.  

Almost 3,200 volunteers participated in 120 projects, removing 60,385 pounds of trash and marine debris and at least 32,717 square feet of invasive plants.  

SOLVE’s Beach & Riverside Cleanup has long been a statewide movement to protect and improve Oregon’s watersheds. With cleanups happening along waterways across the state and on nearly every mile of the Oregon Coast, the Beach & Riverside Cleanup has kept its promise to do just that. Since the start of the Beach & Riverside Cleanup, over 1.7 million pounds of litter have been removed by over 130,000 volunteers. Oregonians came out in full force, increasing the positive impact.
