The City of Jacksonville’s Keep Jacksonville Beautiful invites residents to participate in the 2020 Florida Coastal Cleanup event. This event, which will provide volunteers with an opportunity to help beautify the city’s shorelines, is part of the Ocean Conservancy’s Annual International Coastal Cleanup (ICC).

WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020

WHAT: Florida Coastal Cleanup is a part of the annual ICC, the world's largest volunteer effort to help protect our ocean, lakes and rivers. Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers from around the world spend a few hours removing trash and debris from beaches, lakes, and rivers, keeping track of every piece of trash they find. Ocean Conservancy uses that information to produce an annual snapshot of the marine debris problem. Locally, in 2019, 8,830 pounds, or 4.41 tons of debris was collected by 1,075 volunteers who donated 2,213 hours of their time. The value of that volunteer time amounted to $56,277, based on hourly volunteer estimates by Keep America Beautiful.
