Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful presents the Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup as part of the International Coastal Cleanup. Unlike a typical litter removal event, this event offers the opportunity for volunteers to engage in vital international research activities by taking on the role of “Scientist for a Day.” With a specific focus on water-based natural resource protection, volunteers collect items and record the data. This information is used to determine future requirements for cleanup initiatives, assess projects that are needed in the area, and develop awareness of these needs within the local communities who share these waterways.
Thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors, and partners for helping to make this event a huge success! In 2016, 4,773 volunteers removed 128,265 pounds of litter and debris from our waterways. Join the movement to protect our waterways.
