Let's Get Back Out There!
Broward County participates in the annual International Coastal Cleanup, sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy. The Cleanup takes place in over 122 countries with over 1 million volunteers participating worldwide and typically on the 3rd Saturday of September.
This year we are getting back out there! All cleanup sites will be open for in-person participation.
We recommend using current safety guidelines such as wearing facial masks and staying in small groups. Like last year, independent cleanup efforts anywhere in the County will be accepted starting in September until December 31st. Go to Cleanup Instructions for more details.
The date is set for the 36th Annual Coastal Cleanup - Saturday, September 18, 2021 from 9am to 12pm!
The Cleanup may be postponed or cancelled due to a tropical weather system resulting in a Watch or Warning or new restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Call 954-519-1218 for cancellation information.
Most effective way to conduct the cleanup is by downloading and using the Clean Swell App
Bring a bucket/Save a bag!
If you have a 5-gallon bucket at home you can bring to use, that will keep one more plastic bag out of a trash disposal site.
Please register and dress appropriately for the weather, either rain or shine. To participate, bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen, and water to one of the cleanup site locations.
