Please joins us for the 28th annual International Coastal Clean-up &
26th annual Halifax/Indian River Cleanup
September 20, 2014
8:00 am to 10:30 am
Thanks for your interest in keeping our beaches and waterways beautiful!
REGISTER HERE FOR COASTAL CLEANUP.
Registration is OPEN! Registration closes September 10th.
A clean-up memento will be given to all pre-registered participants
Registration will be open from August 1st through September 10th. Please only register your number of participants
online once during this time. It is ideal to have all your information correct prior to registering (ie number of
people and desired location); remember you have until September 10th to register and we have no limits on how many
people can participate at this event!
Once registered, if you need to adjust your numbers or location please call Volusia County Environmental at 386-736-5927 and speak to Kathy Ebding.
If you have a large group of volunteers interested in this event you can arrange a private location for your group to meet and clean up. This will help spread out the beautification effort along our coastlines!! Please contact staff at 386-238-4716 or email@example.com to register for a private site and do not register at the above link.
Once registered, please arrive at your selected site on September 20th at 8 am to sign in and get your supplies, which includes a trash tally data card. In an effort to reduce the waste produced by the clean-up, please bring plastic shopping bags (to re-use for trash collection) and garden gloves (to reduce the use of plastic gloves)! Trash grabbers (and rakes or shovels for river sites ONLY) may be helpful but are not necessary. Don't forget to wear sun screen, comfortable clothing and shoes, and bring plenty of water!
Each September, volunteers around the WORLD work together to clean beaches, rivers and other waterways. Volunteers document every piece of trash they find on standardized trash tally data cards, which will be provided to you. This information is used by the Ocean Conservancy to produce the world’s only state-by-state, country-by-country Marine Debris Index. By understanding sources of marine debris, we can work together to solve this problem. Please be prepared to work as a team and have a person designated to write down the amount and type of trash you pick up as you remove it from the coast! Data cards and writing utensils will be provided!
From product design, purchasing choices, to waste disposal, we all have a role to play in keeping our oceans clean and eliminating marine debris. Individuals can take steps every day to protect our oceans – everyone counts. Reduce, reuse, recycle, refuse and RETHINK your connection to the ocean. Join us to help keep the coasts beautiful all year long!

Learn more about TRASH:
Trash is one of the most widespread pollution problems threatening our oceans and waterways worldwide – yet it’s entirely preventable. Marine debris is more than an eyesore. It is a threat to marine wildlife and ecosystems. It undermines tourism and economic activity, potentially threatening our food supply and human health. When we trash our ocean, we trash our life support system.
