Trash CleanupA cleanup event is a great way to help show your commitment to the local community.

The BoatU.S. Foundation's Guide to Waterway Cleanups is written for boaters, marinas and towing companies to cover everything you need to know to host your own cleanup event including what you need to do before, during and after your event such as information on recruiting volunteers, promoting your event, getting sponsorship and donations for the event and even educational materials to help educate the boating public on the hazards of marine debris. The guide also provides tips on working with larger events such as the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), and Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup
