Clean Ocean Action's Beach Sweeps is a biannual, statewide beach cleanup that occurs at over 70 locations throughout the state of New Jersey. Each beach sweeper becomes a citizen scientist for the day as they record each piece of debris that they collect. This turns a one-day cleanup event into a legacy of data that impacts research and legislation. For more information, please visit or call 732-872-0111.

Clean Ocean Action's Spring 2019 Beach Sweeps on Saturday, April 13th at over 60 NJ locations!

Since launching the region's first Beach Sweeps program in 1985, over 123,200 COA volunteers have participated and removed over 6.2 million pieces of debris from New Jersey's beaches and waterways.
