Drop off trash from 5 PM - 7 PM

Trash drop off at Anglers Roost in Hamilton.

Each year, volunteers for BRWF pull thousands of pounds of trash out of the Bitterroot River. Volunteers claim stretches of the river from Sula and Painted Rocks to the confluence at the Clark Fork in Missoula. Sign up above to claim your spot! 

Trash Drop off from 5-7 pm at Anglers Roost.

Due to COVID-19 volunteers helping to unload will have face coverings.

We're hoping for less trash this year thanks to our Clean Up All Year program but we need your help to find out!

Thank you to the 90 volunteers who helped remove 2,152 pounds of trash this year!

Bitterroot River Clean Up run smoothly, all in the name of clean, abundant water!

A variety of tasks and times are available to pick from on Saturday.

Due to hardships local businesses have felt during COVID-19 we did not request sponsorships from businesses this year. 

We are so grateful to our local businesses and to the foundations and organizations who stepped up to support this event.
