Once again, Clean Ocean Action will help to keep our beaches clean this Saturday, April 13th. Volunteers will gather at beaches all over the Jersey Shore with gloves and trash bags to help keep our beautiful beaches clean.

According to Clean Ocean Action, more than 10,000 volunteers donated their time in 2018 to help clean our beaches. Over 454,000 pieces of debris were removed at over 60 different locations up and down the coast.

Plastic or foam plastic still remains the most popular items collected. Also, cigarette filters, caps and lids, candy wrappers, bags, beverages and glass pieces.

Here are some tips from Clean Ocean Action: Dress for the weather, wear gloves, sunscreen and closed, hard-soled shoes and be careful of sharp objects.
