Ending the flow of trash at the source

After The Cleanup

Finished cleaning up? Here’s what to do next.

Share Your Results

After your volunteers submit their data on Clean Swell, encourage them to share it on Facebook or Twitter!

If your volunteers used data cards, enter them into Ocean Conservancy’s database! Create an account, select your location on the map and enter your information. Double check to ensure the date, number of participants, weight and distance are correct and with the correct units.

If you have any questions, or would like to share photos or highlights, feel free to reach out to Ocean Conservancy:

  • Email: cleanup@oceanconservancy.org
  • Mail: Ocean Conservancy
    Attn: International Coastal Cleanup
    1300 19th St NW, 8th Floor
    Washington, DC 20036

Survey your cleanup team post-event. Encourage everyone to share experiences, stories and pictures about what they saw. This might encourage others to attend future events—and now is the time to start planning. Let them know about your next cleanup; get volunteers onboard while their enthusiasm is high! Check out our page on marine debris educational resources.
