Coastal Cleanup Month

Every Saturday in September from 9:00 am -12:00 pm

This year, due to health concerns, cleaning the Bay and our coast will start at our own front doors. Pick an outdoor place that you spend time in.

This September help clean the bay and our beaches by picking up litter in your neighborhoods and local natural areas. Trash travels through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become beach and ocean pollution. 

Stay Safe

  • For safety reasons, there are no large, centrally organized cleanup sites this year. 
  • Cleanups will be self-guided and close to home. 
  • How to prepare for cleanup


How to Remove Gloves Safely

  • Take one glove off and crumple it into a ball. 
  • Remove the other glove by pinching the inside edge of the glove with your ungloved hand. 
  • Slowly pull off the glove, flipping it inside out and making sure not to touch the outside. 
  • Safely dispose of it in the trash and wash hands thoroughly.

Do It Yourself Supply Ideas

  • Grocery bags or buckets for trash
  • Kitchen tongs as pickers
