COASTSWEEP Cleanup List

Volunteer at one of these beach cleanups organized by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM).

Most COASTSWEEP cleanups are held in September and October, with a few in late August and into November. In August, the list of available cleanups is posted below and updated every week through November.

PLEASE NOTE: This year, for the safety of volunteers, CZM will base decisions on whether cleanups will occur on the status of the state’s COVID-19 reopening plan. See the COASTSWEEP 2020 - COVID-19 Notice for more.

Need more information? See Overview and Index for a full list of COASTSWEEP website content, or email your questions to coastsweep@mass.gov. We are always happy to help new volunteers!
