Puget Soundkeeper is the regional coordinator for Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) – the world’s largest volunteer project in service to our oceans. Volunteers remove trash from beaches and waterways and document sources of debris as part of promoting behavior changes to prevent marine litter in the first place. The 2020 Trash Report details the work of the 327 volunteers who participated in Puget Sound ICC efforts from September through October of this year.

In comparison to previous years, overall totals are different due to COVID-19, but volunteers safely cleaned up 297 miles of shoreline and removed 3,008 pounds of trash. Click HERE to view the full report.
