Renew Our Rivers


Because of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, and to protect the health and safety of volunteers, Alabama Power has suspended participation in Renew Our Rivers cleanups until further notice. Please check back for any updates.



Renew Our Rivers began in 2000 as a community river cleanup organized by Alabama Power employees from Plant Gadsden concerned about litter found along the Coosa River. Today, Renew Our Rivers is one of the nation’s largest river cleanups. With the help of local community partners, volunteers and organizations, Alabama Power has coordinated more than 117,000 volunteers and removed 15.5 million pounds of trash from Southeastern waterways.
