River clean By DEMISE DZIUK Staff Writer Local river outfitters are taking steps to clean up the Guadalupe River and make it an enjoyable place to spend the hot summer days Rockin R River Rides issued a chal lenge to its employees to clean up the riv er The outfitters top four employees were allowed to pick three team members to help them pick up trash The four teams then drew for sections of the river The sections covered the first crossing to the Gruene Bridge and were the areas that are the most traveled and most lit said Rockin R Owner Zero Rivers Theres such a large number of tourists you could easily spend an eight hour day picking up trash off the he said The trash had to be collected on Mon day and Tuesday The bags were then weighed and the team collecting the most won The winning captain received a bonus and everyone on the win ning team won between and dollars The amount the team actually wins is based on the efficiency of their efforts said Rivers He said a manager will go down the river and rate the areas from A to B depending on how good of a job was done The prize money will then be based on the efficiency grade they receive I expect the ratings to be at the high er end of the scale because all they have to do is pick up the trash on the river and the said Rivers Rivers said the contest is a way of giv ing the employees more incentive to get out and pick up trash He said Rockin R is cosponsored by the Water Oriented Recreation District to help clean up the river WORD provides some funds to pay employees to clean up and the out fitter adds to that out of their own funds said Rivers Rockin R River Rides is not the only outfitter working to improve the quality of the river Jim Dunman owner of Jer rys Tubes said his company was in a joint contest with Rivers several months ago However he feels the efforts would be more successful if they were aimed at Theres such a large number of tourists you could easily spend an eight hour day picking up trash off the Zero Rivers getting the community involved These guys usually work six days a week and the last thing they want to do on their day off is get on the river and pick up trash We need to get the word out to the said Dunman Dunman said he sends out eight to ten people every week to pick up trash Like Rivers Dunman pays these volunteers their regular salary for cleaningup He said he also occasionally runs contests for his employees Sometimes I run contests with them on the clock to give them even more of an incentive Its the most effective said Dunman Nan Ebert manager at Gruene River Raft Company they have been sponsor ing cleanup trips every week for as long as she can remember She said they usu ally send out three or four boats with two people in each one She said her groups are responsible for a specific sec tion of the river just like Rivers and Dunman are John Guenzel owner of Rio Raft said they approach the litter problem by trying to prevent it He said he feels a lot of his customers do use the mesh bags provided by WORD because the trash bins are full a exits Basically itspublic education were working he said Ebert said the mesh litter bags pro vided by WORD have been of some benefit However not everyone uses them and thats why river cleanups are necessary Ill admit that some of our customers are not as responsive as others but some do use them and that she said
