OPIRG Guelph hosted the 40th 2Rivers Cleanup Saturday as volunteers gathered to clean the banks of the Speed River.

The event, which is also part of the Wellington Water Watchers 2Rivers Festival, saw seven different groups head out along the river from Neeve Street to the east and the Hanlon Expressway to the west.

Refreshments were served once the cleaning was done.

This year's event did not include the Eramosa River.
