Volunteer for a Blitz Cleanup

Volunteer for a Blitz Cleanup


Litter turns up everywhere – 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 harmful to 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 neighborhoods throughout Ocean County.


This year’s Blitz cleanups are happening during Earth Week from April 15th to April 22nd. Get outside and make a difference for a healthy watershed by volunteering for a local cleanup. Sometimes the best way to remove trash in the water is by boat, so if you enjoy getting out on the water, consider volunteering for one of the cleanups by kayak or canoe.


Visit our Blitz page for information about volunteering for a cleanup during Earth Week. Email questions about the Blitz to Karen Walzer at


The Blitz is organized by the Barnegat Bay Partnership in partnership with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection and Ocean County Clean Communities.
