The Guam International Coastal Cleanup has become a landmark event in our island community for decades, drawing participants from local organizations, schools, businesses, and individuals who share a passion for environmental conservation and stewardship. With the support of these dedicated volunteers, we have made significant strides in keeping our oceans clean and safe for marine life.
Guam first joined the Ocean Conservancy in this worldwide effort to prevent pollution with three sites: Ylig Bay, Agat Shore, and Dungca’s Beach with only 450 volunteers. Guam is now in its 29th year with over 25 sites and over 4,000 volunteers collecting several tons of trash from Guam’s beaches.
The Guam International Coastal Cleanup is organized and led by the Guam Coastal Management Program with generous Site Leader Volunteers who organize and manage each of the cleanup site locations. In cooperation with the Guam Department of Education (GDOE), students can earn valuable service-learning hours for participating.
The 25 cleanup site locations are found in the registration form with a show time of 6:00 am for most sites.
Registered volunteers will receive gloves, trash bags, and a free Coastal Cleanup T-shirt at check-in (while supplies last). Minors registered under a group must be accompanied by their registered chaperones to participate and receive supplies. Please wear appropriate clothing for outdoors, sunblock, and bring your refillable water bottle.
In order to improve the volunteer experience, we are requiring all volunteers to pre-register for the event through our Eventbrite ticketing website. There is NO on-site registration on the day of the event. Unregistered individuals wanting to volunteer will be turned away. The number of tickets for each site will be capped based on the severity of trash in the area and the number of volunteers needed for each site.
