In early June, volunteers removed 1,000 pounds of trash along the banks of the Iowa River.

The event was organized by the University of Iowa Engineering Staff Advisory Council, UI Facilities Management, the Office of Sustainability and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

After gathering the trash, the volunteers sorted through the waste for recyclables.
