The 31st Annual Coastal Cleanup spans the state’s 97-mile eastern coastline and includes ocean, bay and river shorelines as well as inland wetland and watershed areas.
Volunteers of all ages are invited to help make a difference for Delaware’s shoreline and waterways while joining an international effort to clean up the world’s waters.
This year’s cleanup will target more than 45 sites in New Castle, Kent, and Sussex counties. Volunteers are asked to register for the event as individuals or groups and to indicate a preference for which site they’re interested in cleaning.
In 2017, a force of 1,567 volunteers collected 3.8 tons of trash from 47 sites from Wilmington to Fenwick Island.
