KCP ‘trash busters’ clean up Blue River

In its 15th year of participation, Kansas City Plant provided more than 50 volunteers to the annual Blue River Rescue effort. Each year KCP joins hundreds of community volunteers of all ages to help pick up trash and plant trees during the largest one day stream clean-up in Missouri.

The annual Blue River Rescue event successfully cleaned up approximately 100 tons of trash along its banks.

The effort calls on community volunteers to be environmental stewards of a 22-mile stretch of land that surrounds the waterway which flows near the Kansas City Plant.
