Beach Sweep/River Sweep is South Carolina’s largest one-day volunteer cleanup event of its kind. Every 3rd Saturday in September, thousands of South Carolinian’s clear beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps of aquatic debris. The cleanup, organized by the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium and South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, has taken place annually since 1988 – when Sea Grant first started it. The Sweep takes place in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup, coordinated by The Ocean Conservancy.
Locally, residents can help keep our waterways free of trash and debris by participating in the Beach Sweep/River Sweep. Cleanup supplies will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. All volunteers will be required to sign a liability waiver. A parent or guardian must sign for participants under 18, and all participants under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
