(Naples, FL – Sept 1, 2022) Keep Collier Beautiful invites all Collier County residents to volunteer for the 37th annual International Coastal Cleanup on Saturday, September 17, 2022. The event runs from 8:00 am to 11:00 am at a dozen beaches in Collier County.
“Community-wide cleanup efforts reduce litter and debris, but more importantly, they are an opportunity to engage young adults in taking action to protect our environment,” said Larry Berg, Sr. District Manager, WM.
Keep Collier Beautiful beach cleanup events are perfect for the young and young-at-heart. Volunteers are encouraged to bring friends, family, and coworkers for a fun and meaningful project. Volunteer service hours are available for pre-registered students and employees. Free registration is available at www.KeepCollierBeautiful.com/events.
The International Cleanup event was founded by the Ocean Conservancy, with local efforts being spearheaded by Keep Collier Beautiful and its partner organizations. The community-wide cleanup is meant to bring together volunteers, local businesses, and municipalities in support of Collier County’s unique environment. Through ongoing partnerships, Keep Collier Beautiful helps support litter prevention, education, and community cleanup programs.
