The Hillsborough River & Coastal Cleanup is not your typical litter removal event. As part of
this effort, volunteers collect data to identify the number and type of littered items, the
overall tonnage removed from each site and the amount of recyclable materials diverted.
This information is used to determine future needs and projects within the community while creating
an awareness. As part of the International Coastal Cleanup, data is shared with Keep America Beautiful,
the Ocean Conservancy, as well as local officials to help provide a local and global perspective.
Last year we removed well over 60,500 pounds of litter and
debris from over 75 locations throughout Hillsborough County.
We had over 4,000 volunteers participate in the cleanup along the
Hillsborough River, Alafia River and other waterways.
