Participants under the age of 18 in the Coastal Cleanup or in other DNREC volunteer programs, will need to download the required parental consent form.

Recycling Trash:  For 2016, the Cleanup’s recycling program will continue. Volunteers will be given black trash bags plus a second color for recyclables. The bags will then be placed in separate piles at each sites’ designated trash pickup location.

Volunteers are asked to put only clean and intact recyclable glass, plastic and aluminum beverage containers in the recyclable bags. If these containers are badly damaged or contain sand or other materials, they are not recyclable.

Beautifying the Bayshore:  More than two dozen Coastal Cleanup sites are part of Delaware’s Bayshore, which encompasses the central part of the state’s shoreline east of Route 1, from New Castle and Delaware City in southern New Castle County to the Lewes/Cape Henlopen area of Sussex County.

Please help keep our beaches beautiful.
