Take Care of Your Community

Join SOLVE and thousands of volunteers in September 2019 as we support the health of our public beaches, neighborhoods, and natural areas, while cleaning up litter from source to sea! Choose from over 100 litter cleanup and restoration projects across Oregon, including 45 beach cleanup sites along the entire coast. This is a family friendly event, 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 the International Coastal Cleanup, an annual worldwide effort to keep our beaches and waterways clean and healthy. To learn more, check out the 2017 Cleanup Report. Every piece you pick up will contribute to this important global effort.

Be a Beach Captain!

SOLVE extends its thanks to our coastal partners who donate hauling for this event!
