Beach Sweep in Long Beach Island

Clean Ocean Action's Beach Sweeps is one of the longest running cleanups in the world. Since 1985, over 70,000 volunteers have participated and removed over 3 million pieces of debris from New Jersey's beaches and waterways. Rain or shine, come join Jersey Cares and be part of the movement!

Join others in your community for a fun day along the oceanside.

 

For a safe and successful Sweep, please follow the tips below:
 

  • Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult

  • PLEASE bring and wear your own gloves! Gardener's gloves are best or even winter gloves (as they may be washed) or rubber gloves will work (all other materials will be provided)

  • Attend rain or shine

  • Dress for the weather (It's usually chillier at the beach)

  • Wear Sunscreen

  • Stay off the dunes

  • Respect wildlife

  • Wear Close-toed, hard-soled shoes such as sneakers (open-toed sandals, please)

  • Reduce single use plastics and bring a reusable water bottle

 
When you are finished, please remember to bring your data card and garbage bags (all of which are provided for you) back to the centralized meeting location, tally your data, and give to the Beach Captain at the end of the Beach Sweep.
 
See you at the Sweeps!
