Submitting a tally of the trash you find is one of the most important parts of the Source to Sea Cleanup. Your data helps show the scope of the trash problem so we can focus solutions where they’re needed most.
We recommend assigning a volunteer or two to handle the tallying, while others do the pick up. This is a great job for youth in your groups or anyone who has mobility issues or for any reason would rather not pick up trash.
Make sure your location services are turned on so the app can detect that you’re collecting trash in the Connecticut River region and be counted toward CRC’s trash totals. If you use the app, you do NOT need to also submit the trash tally form below.
Download the free app from the Apple app store or Google Play. Make sure to allow location services while using app so it can detect that you’re collecting trash in the Connecticut River region and be counted toward CRC’s trash totals.

Tap ‘Start Collecting’ button and set your group name: “CRC – your group name/family name”. Please don’t delete CRC from the start of your group name and use the group name you registered with.
Add each item, tapping the appropriate icon or using the comments feature to add any items not included in the app, such as nip bottles or furniture. NOTE: You can hold down icons to add larger quantities.
When your cleanup is complete, click “Submit My Data” — the duration of cleanup time and total pounds will automatically be filled in.
