Clearwater joins International Coastal Clean-up on Sept. 17 | Community Spirit
CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The City of Clearwater with Keep Pinellas Beautiful will be participating in the 26th Annual International Coastal Clean-up on Saturday, Sept. 17 beginning at 9 a.m. In Clearwater, the clean-up will take place at the Courtney Campbell Causeway beach.
Participants will remove trash and debris, and are asked to wear closed-toed shoes, dress for the outdoors, wear sunscreen, and bring a pair of work or gardening gloves. Supervision, water and all tools and supplies will be provided. All ages are welcome. Students who participate are eligible to receive school service hours.
Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove trash and debris from the world's beaches and waterways. Each year on the third Saturday in September, hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb lakes, rivers, and beaches around the world for litter. They are at the heart of the International Coastal Cleanup. Last year, nearly half-a-million people from 108 countries and locations including 45 US states removed 7.4 million pounds of trash from waterways.
