Save The River encourages all cottage and homeowners on the river to participate in this free event hosted by the Development Authority of the North Country and NYSDEC. This event is just one small part of our Trash Free River program and an ongoing effort to make the St. Lawrence River “swimmable, fishable, and drinkable now and for generations to come”.
Send us a selfie or photo of your collected waste when you drop off your waste at one of these free collection days and you will receive a free 8×10 print featuring a stunning river photo.
How is works:
Collect your household waste that is accepted at one of the upcoming collection days. Take a picture of your collection and/or a selfie when you are at the drop-off site.
All you have to do is email your pictures to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, phone number and address so that we can mail you the above print for free!
