Clean Ocean Action’s Beach Sweeps is one of the longest running cleanups in the world. The cleanup first started in 1985 with 75 volunteers. Today, this bi-annual event includes beach, river, lake, and stream cleanups. Since 1985, over 70,000 volunteers have participated and removed over 3.5 million pieces of debris from New Jersey’s beaches and waterways. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. To participate, select a beach from the list of over 60 Beach Sweep Sites. Groups of 10 or more are asked to pre-register by completing the online form. When arriving at your chosen site, please register with the site’s “Beach Captain,” who will direct you during the cleanup.
