Coastal Cleanup 2018 - 30th Anniversary!
September 15 - 22, 2018
We invite you to join Maine’s largest single volunteer event. The Coastal Cleanup includes volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who clean our coastal shoreline and associated waterways of trash. Each year over a thousand participants clear hundreds of miles of thousands of pounds of trash. What is collected is recorded and this data then becomes part of the international ocean trash index which is compiled by Ocean Conservancy. Your efforts continue to ensure that our coastal waters and habitats remain healthy and trash free.
The International Coastal Cleanup
Maine Coastweek is part of the International Coastal Cleanup which is a one day global event . Please visit the Ocean Conservancy and select Cleanup Reports – which includes reports of previous International Coastal Cleanup efforts.
