Monthly Cleanups


Join us!

The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program (MSCCP) is calling all volunteers to action. Once a month, the MSCCP will host a beach cleanup at a location within one of the coastal counties (Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties). 

Your participation in the Monthly Cleanups will add your name into a running tally that keeps track of your involvement in the Mississippi Coastal Cleanup Program. The more Monthly Cleanups you participate in, the more entries your name will be on for a higher chance of winning prizes at the Annual Mississippi Coastal Cleanup event in October!


Registration coming soon!
