Little Harpeth River Cleanup

Volunteers help pick up trash during the Little Harpeth River Cleanup in 2020.

The Brentwood Noon Rotary Club announced it will host the 17th annual Little Harpeth River Cleanup on Saturday, Feb. 5, and volunteers are needed.

The Little Harpeth River winds through the city of Brentwood for more than 10 miles and has been an integral part of the area since it was first settled thousands of years ago. The Brentwood Noon Rotary decided to orchestrate the cleanup event in 2006 out of a concern for the health and cleanliness of the river.

The Rotary Club is searching for civic groups, businesses, Scout troops, neighborhood HOAs or other interested citizens to help clean portions of the river. 

Volunteers are asked to meet at the John P. Holt Brentwood Library on Concord Road at 8:15 a.m. to register and eat a light breakfast. Then, groups will disperse to 12 sections of the river that were divided up by the Rotary Club’s Environmental Projects Committee.

Trash bags, safety vests and trash removal gear will be provided by Keep Williamson Beautiful, and volunteers will have the morning and early afternoon to remove debris and collect unwanted trash along the river banks. Rotarians will be on hand to help dispose of the trash at the end of the cleanup. 

Interested volunteers should contact Patrick Wright at pwright@insbank.com for more information.
