2020 International Coastal Cleanup
Locally led by the Division of Coastal Resources Management (DCRM), the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is the world's largest single-day cleanup event with the goal of collecting and documenting trash littering our coastlines and waterways. Volunteers from states and territories throughout the U.S. and over 100 countries worldwide come together every year and participate in the cleanup event near them. The two layers of science and community service is what distinguishes ICC from everyday cleanups. The data collected during the ICC is entered into the Ocean Conservancy's Global Trash Database and is crucial to solving the world's ocean pollution problem.
Participants will adopt a location on Saipan (beach, community area, or roadside) and are asked to collect data while freeing our land and seas of debris. Supplies, including trash bags, gloves, and data sheets, can be provided upon request. Trash hauling and disposal will be taken care of by the DCRM Team.
We would like to remind the public to practice proper social distancing and hand hygiene while participating in this year's cleanup event. Although DCRM is unable to provide face masks, we would like to encourage all participants to take precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers.
