New Hampshire Coastal Cleanup

The New Hampshire Coastal Cleanup is held in September and October in conjunction with the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC).  New Hampshire has participated in the ICC for over 25 years.


This is the largest one-day volunteer event of its kind!  There are several ways you can get involved:

  • Join a public cleanup.  Join us on Saturday, September 16.

  • Coordinate a site: Want to lead a cleanup? Contact us and we’ll help you set one up at your local beach. We can even help provide volunteers!
  • Arrange a cleanup for your group of 10+ on a day and at a beach you choose. Click here to contact us
