Let's talk trash: Downtown river clean-up impact

Here's a little trash talk: litter and debris was removed from the downtown portion of the Zumbro River. And, oh, where there some unique finds! Check out what the group of our Clean and Safe Ambassadors, Rochester Downtown Alliance staff, and the City of Rochester's Community Action Team members picked out of the river and its banks.

  Twenty bags worth of litter

 

  52 golf balls

 

  Large debris like a rusty bike, metal fence posts, and welding equipment

 

  One of the Clean and Safe Ambassadors’ cousin’s student ID
