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. This data contributes to a global data set that drives policy change and encourages behavior change to prevent marine litter in the first place.

The 2021 Trash Report details the work of the 552 volunteers who participated in Puget Sound ICC efforts from September through October, 2021.

Volunteers removed 1,270 pounds of trash and marine debris from 33 miles of shoreline.
