Celebrating 30 years of keeping our coasts clean, NOAA
For the past three decades, the International Coastal Cleanup has been turning the tide on trash. Join the NOAA Marine Debris Program and Ocean Conservancy for the largest global volunteer effort to clean up local shorelines, coastal areas, parks, and neighborhoods on Saturday, September 19, 2015.
Last year, nearly 680,000 volunteers removed more than 16 million pounds of trash from 91 countries. Be a part of the action and participate in this year’s cleanup. Find a site near you.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program is a proud partner in the International Coastal Cleanup.
