On September 18, 2021, Volusia County will participate in the Ocean Conservancy’s 36th International Coastal Cleanup (ICC). You can register now to make a difference and keep our waterways clean.
Public sites will have registration available from August 2 to August 27, 2021. Sites will be closed for registration when they reach capacity. The first 1,500 registered participants will receive a promotional item with the 2021 ICC logo, however registration is not required to participate.
Last year, over 943,195 volunteers around the world collected more than 20 million pounds of trash during the International Coastal Cleanup, which is sponsored by the Ocean Conservancy. Also in 2020, 936 Volusia County volunteers collected 3,257 pounds of trash during the cleanup. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the limited and socially distanced nature of the event, participation was lower than in previous years.
In addition to taking part in the annual cleanup, residents can help decrease marine debris simply by reducing the amount of waste and single use products they generate on a daily basis. Remember the motto, “Reduce and reuse, then recycle.”
Some sites are intended for boater use only, and are not ideal for pedestrians; these are indicated on the site list as *Boater only*. Your efforts can be recorded directly through the Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell app. Please plan to visit any waterway location of your choice to participate in this worldwide event.
