The Wisconsin River is looking much cleaner today after hundreds of students came together to pick up trash.
It was all part of the 15th annual Wisconsin River Clean-Up.
Students from nine area high schools climbed into boats and picked up trash and debris from the water and the shoreline.
In the past, students have collected more than 4 tons of debris.
That includes some unusual items.
"We have had everything from toppers on trucks to coolers to picnic tables. One year somebody dropped half a roof off with shingles and that was awful hard to pick up." says event organizer Todd Fischer.
As many as 300 students participated in the clean-up event.
