  3. Find a Waterway or Surrounding Area.  Ponds, small streams, lakes, rivers, ditches, and gullies all count!  If you have limited time or are working with young children, cleaning up neighborhood sewer grates or any area that ends up in nearby waterway is a great choice!
  4. Open the Clean Swell App and Start Collecting!  Join over 800,000 people around the world participating in cleanups in September!
  5. When naming your cleanup, include the letters “IWC” so that we can see our collective impact!
  6. Click “Done Collecting”
