Dedicated to removing floating trash from the Charles River.
The Charles River Clean Up Boat is a privately funded, 501(c)(3), non-profit, organization whose objective is to remove the floating trash from the Charles River. With a refurbished boat, and a new motor courtesy of the Boston Duck Tours, we started our clean up operations in June of 2004. Today we have a new boat, the LISA S, donated by the Lawrence & Lillian Solomon Fund. Patrolling the river several times a week during the spring, summer and fall more than two hundred bags of floating trash are removed each year by our volunteers, greatly improving the water quality and appearance of the Charles.
