SaalePUTZ (cleaning of the river Saale)

The SaalePUTZ is a joint action of Bürgerstiftung Jena and its project, the Freiwilligenagentur Jena, several local associations and the city of Jena.

Every spring we call on volunteers - and usually more than 500 people come together - to clean the Saale of rubbish along various stretches of the river. You can register here on the website and the community foundation provides the materials (buckets, gloves, etc.) and, in cooperation with the KSJ, takes care of the removal of the rubbish.

Our next event

The city of Jena, the Jena Community Foundation and numerous Jena associations invite you to the 16th SaalePUTZ on Saturday, 6 April 2024 at 10 am. The banks of the Saale from Maua via the Burgau weir and the Camsdorf bridge to Kunitz will be cleared of rubbish and scrap. We look forward to any help!

Registration via our registration form is no longer possible (Fri, 10 am).

You want to join us spontaneously? Just turn up at 10am with gloves, waterproof shoes and a collection bucket at one of the meeting points on the map or collect in your neighbourhood and use the containers (click on the map to enlarge).
