Lead a community cleanup!

Take the first step to make a difference right in your own community. You can even open it to the public and meet other people passionate about cleaner shorelines!





Select a date and location to lead a cleanup with your group. During your cleanup, participants become citizen scientists and track the kinds of litter they find, all while being outside and protecting wildlife! Online resources are provided to walk you through all the steps, before, during and even after your cleanup. Have any questions? We’re here to help! shorelinecleanup@ocean.org or 1-877-427-2422

I want to lead a community cleanup

Site Coordinators need to be 19+.

Under 19? You can still be a cleanup hero. You'll just need a responsible adult to register the cleanup and attend with you on the day.




My new goal for my involvement with the Shoreline Cleanup is to increase participation by finding a new site coordinator every year to champion a shoreline in their community.
