International Coastal Cleanup a Success in Pasco

Rainy weather didn’t dampen spirits at the 2021 International Coastal Cleanup presented by the Rotary Club of New Port Richey.  More than 1,200 volunteers worked throughout Pasco County, picking up 24,000 pounds of trash and litter along roadways, public spaces and waterways during the September 18, 2021 event.

Event by the numbers:

  • 12 tons of trash and litter collected
  • 52 locations around Pasco
  • 1,210 volunteers
  • 3,771 volunteer hours logged

“We’re thrilled by the turnout,” said Keep Pasco Beautiful Coordinator Kristen King.  “This year we had more locations than ever, and many of those locations are along roadways.  By cleaning roadways and public spaces, we’re preventing trash from entering out waterways.”

The Pasco County Department of Public Works plays an important role in picking up trash from the event and manages the Adopt-A-Thon program for volunteers who are interested in helping clean up our community in other ways.
