About the Blitz
Litter – it’s everywhere! You see it on our streets, in our parks, on our shorelines, and in the water. Blown by the wind on trash day, tossed out car windows, intentionally dumped – however it gets there, it’s an eyesore and bad for the environment.
The Barnegat Bay Blitz is an annual watershed-wide cleanup that brings together hundreds of volunteers with one goal in mind – keeping our land and water clean by removing litter from our neighborhoods. By removing bags, bottles, and butts to tires and larger items, Blitz volunteers make a difference!
Volunteer for a Blitz Cleanup
Volunteer at one (or more!) of the cleanups happening throughout Ocean County during Earth Week. Once registration has opened, there will be a list posted below to find a cleanup in your area. You will be able to email the Captain for your cleanup, and they will send you information, including where to meet, and provide a waiver/photo release form for you to sign. For cleanups by kayak, bring your own except where noted. Read our “Tips for Volunteers” for information about what to bring and wear and how to stay safe during a cleanup.
