Join a Connecticut Cleanup Near You

Calling all beach goers, wildlife lovers, and supporters of Save the Sound–the 2021 Connecticut Cleanup is here!

Are you concerned with the state of our environment? Do you want to help do your part to preserve our waterways?

Sign up today as a volunteer for one of this year’s Connecticut Cleanups! Find a site near you in the list below, and we’ll follow up with details about how to connect with your site’s Cleanup Captain on the day of the event.

The Connecticut Cleanup is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, which takes place each fall and culminates this year on September 18. Help your community and the beaches you love by picking up trash and keeping our rivers and Long Island Sound clean.

This year, Save the Sound is committed to keeping you safe while keeping our rivers, green spaces, and beaches trash-free. 

Gloves will be provided at each cleanup site, and participants are encouraged to bring their own masks if it makes them feel more comfortable.

Please register as early as possible, so that we can keep you up-to-date with any protocol changes according to public health guidelines. 

If you are not comfortable participating in an in-person cleanup event, register below for our virtual cleanup option! 

Contact Annalisa Paltauf at with any questions. 

Thanks for signing up to clean up and keep trash out of our waterways!

*By registering for a cleanup below, you are indicating a commitment to participate in that event. Please contact us if you can no longer attend.
