Host  a Cleanup in Your Area With the Help of BoatUS Foundation

New Guide to Waterway Cleanups for Boating Business and Boaters

Clean waterways are essential to  safe and fun boating. Whether you are a boater, a marina owner, a towboat  captain or other waterfront business owner, helping to keep our waterways clean  is in everyone’s best interest. Each year hundreds of thousands of individuals  help by participating in beach and waterway cleanups around the world,  collecting millions of pounds of trash and debris. Boaters and marine-based  businesses are especially well equipped to help in this effort. With waterfront  access and boats, we can easily get to locations that can be otherwise  difficult to reach. Thanks to the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and  Clean Water, conducting your own cleanup event is now a lot easier.

Cleanup events are a great way to show your commitment to your community and the environment.

If you are interested in conducting a cleanup event in your area,  visit to download the guide and start planning  your event.

Not ready to dive into planning your own cleanup event? Why not  participate with an established event in your area? Your special skills, access  to boats and understanding of local waterways could be invaluable to other  groups in expanding their efforts during a cleanup event. Contact the ICC to  participate in an established event by visiting

The  BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national 501(c)(3)  nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting safe and environmentally  sensitive boating. The Foundation’s goal is to be the leader in boating safety  and environmental education and outreach, with the purpose of reducing  accidents and fatalities, increasing stewardship of our waterways, and keeping  boating a safe, accessible and enjoyable pastime.
