Great Port Cleanup

April 21, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

Great port cleanup

Great Port Cleanup

Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is excited to partner with Port Tampa Bay to host the 3rd Annual Great Port Cleanup as we Celebrate Earth Day on Friday, April 21st, 2023!

During this event, port partners and other dedicated community volunteers will safely remove trash and marine debris from several sites in and around our port.  While the majority of this debris originates from outside of the port, we recognize our daily connection with our local waters and are dedicated to doing our part to eliminate marine debris and support “Trash Free Waters” in Tampa Bay.   This event is a call to action for the port community to support the ongoing efforts to keep Tampa Bay a beautiful place to live, work, and play.

If you’d like to help sponsor the event, please email Devenson@KeepTBB.org

Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.

Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.

Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
