Volunteers Needed for Annual Coastweeks Planned Cleanups Kick-off on September 17

Volunteers are needed for the annual Coastweeks Cleanups organized by the Virgin Islands Marine Advisory Service (VIMAS) and supported by numerous community partners. Each cleanup is led by a site captain who will provide data sheets to volunteers to assist with the recording of the types of the weight of debris.

The kick-off cleanup on St. Thomas will start from 9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. on September 17 on Brewers Bay beach.  Interested volunteers should register for this and additional cleanups at

Additional cleanups will be scheduled on St. Thomas and St. Croix until November 2022; you can view the full cleanup schedule at

Beach cleanup supplies such as trash bags, buckets, pencils, gloves, and water will be provided (volunteers should bring a reusable water bottle); students can also earn community service hours for volunteering.
