Since 2011, members of the Lake Wylie Rotary Club get together in the Spring and Fall to help clean up an area of Lake Wylie near the Crowder’s Creek bridge. The club formally participates in York County’s Adopt-a-Stream program. The program is a citizen-based monitoring and litter prevention initiative intended to protect the health and beauty of our local waterways.
The club partners with the Clover High School Interact Club to form one of the largest groups participating in the program.
During the Fall cleanup, the club participates in Lake Wylie Riversweep, the largest organized cleanup effort on Lake Wylie. Every year, approximately 30 tons of trash are dumped in and around Lake Wylie. Members of the Lake Wylie Rotary Club are devoted and passionate about keeping the lake clean and the environment healthy. In 2020, Riversweep was a successful event that included: 1897 bags of trash collected, 2 TV’s, 1 message in a jar (with money!), lots of kid toys, three shopping carts, 253 pieces of lumber and 2,000 pounds of recyclables!
In the Spring, the club partners with the Clover High School Interact Club. In the fall, they do their cleanup in conjunction with Riversweep,
