There will be over 100 litter cleanups and restoration projects to choose from across Oregon, including 45 beach cleanup sites along the entire Oregon coast. This is a family friendly event (note that some sites may have a minimum age restriction), and SOLVE invites all Oregonians to participate.
Trash-Free Seas: Every Piece, Every Person
Started in 1984, the SOLVE Beach & Riverside Cleanup is part of National Public Lands Day and the International Coastal Cleanup, an annual worldwide effort to keep our beaches and waterways clean and healthy and reduce the impacts on marine life. To learn more, check out the 2017 Cleanup Report.
Become a litter scientist! Download the Clean Swell app and help us track litter data during SOLVE litter cleanup events. You can also use a paper data card, which will be available at most cleanup sites.
SOLVE extends its thanks to our coastal partners who donate hauling for this event!
