PHOTOS: Trash Pulled from Cuyahoga River

City employees, volunteers spent Saturday morning pulling garbage from the river

The annual clean-up of the Cuyahoga River saw a few hundred pounds of debris pulled from the river Saturday morning.

This year, the area of the river in focus stretched from the Cuyahoga River north towards the River Bend subdivision. Typically, the area cleaned stretches from Stow Street to the bridge at Middlebury Road.

City employees came in on their morning off and used a trackhoe to pull the garbage out at the construction site of the new Fairchild Avenue Bridge.

Unlike past years, when community members are encouraged to volunteer, it was mostly city employees who did the dirty work.

Bob Brown, manager of the city's water reclamation plant, said they didn't want community volunteers this year because of the steep, rocky banks in this stretch of the river.
