No age limit! Children of all ages enjoy our beach cleanups; it is like a big Easter egg hunt!

The clean up takes approximately an hour and a half.

Haleiwa McDonalds are our 2014 meal sponsors, providing food for all of our volunteers. Please let us know the approximate number of people coming a few days prior to clean up.

To save time at the cleanup, your group can download and study the volunteer cleanup tally sheet for the 30 marine debris items you will be documenting at the clean up.

Safety and sign in forms can also be downloaded and filled in prior to cleanups, for groups or you can all sign in at the cleanup.

If you would like a certificate, please contact us with all of your information a week early, if possible.


Adopt A Beach Hawaii runs monthly beach cleanups and other eco-events, collects data on marine debris and works to improve recycling systems at local beach parks on the island of Oahu. You can help Adopt A Beach by volunteering for a beach cleanup (by yourself or with a group), contributing community appreciation gifts or donating money.
