Monthly Cleanups


Stay involved year-round by participating in a monthly cleanup! We have selected various locations within the coastal counties (Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties) for a cleanup each month to keep the community engaged in preserving the environment to keep it healthy and beautiful. Each Monthly Cleanup takes place on a Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. There will be a Site Captain at the location to lead the event. Site Captains are responsible for getting volunteers signed in and geared up for the event.

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!
