CLEANUPS ARE BACK!

If you are an experienced cleanup volunteer with your own supplies, fill out this form to be notified of our limited emergency cleanups.

Protecting the ocean from trash begins in our neighborhoods! Email us if you need cleanup supplies to use on your block. You can even contribute trash data by downloading the free CleanSwell app & naming your group ‘Coastkeeper Clean’. This is helpful for us, as well as policymakers regarding debris prevention and management.

Please inquire about volunteer hours by emailing [email protected].

As waste continually pollutes our streets, waterways, and beaches, Cleanup OC provides the opportunity for you to help protect and restore the environments well call home.

Through Cleanup OC, Coastkeeper holds monthly beach cleanups and coordinates the annual OC Coastal Cleanup Day. Cleanup OC’s ultimate goal is to unite Orange County communities through service, responsibility, and sharing of the natural environment. Check out all Coastkeeper’s cleanup opportunities to get involved.

Groups interested in volunteering at our beach cleanups must have each participant register individually. Please have each participant register well in advance as space is limited.
