It is estimated that 80% of the trash in our waters originates from land.  Litter and debris along our roadways ends up in stormwater systems which ultimately lead to rivers, lakes and open waters.  To protect our waters we have the Keep Pasco Beautiful Cleanup the third Saturday of every September.  This year the Keep Pasco Beautiful Cleanup was held on Saturday, September 17, 2022.  

Volunteers participated in 40 locations throughout Pasco County. There were 1,268 volunteers that worked for 3,512 hours picking up 23.3 tons of trash. The Independent Sector values a volunteer hour at $29.95, which would put the volunteer cost-benefit for this cleanup at $105,184.40. 

This year we were thrilled to receive a grant from Rotary District 6950 for the Keep Pasco Beautiful Cleanup.  This grant is a partnership between Keep Pasco Beautiful, Rotary District 6950, Rotary Club of New Port Richey, Rotary Club of Holiday, Rotary Club of Hudson, Rotary Club of Seven Springs, Rotary Club of Trinity, and Rotary Club of West Pasco SunsetRotary International has named the Environment as one of its priorities.  They are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment. 











The local cleanups, mobilized by Ocean Conservancy, are part of the largest worldwide volunteer effort on behalf of ocean health. The purpose is to clean up and track the trash collected. More than 8 million metric tons of plastic trash ends up in our oceans every year. Since 1986, the International Coastal Cleanup has captured more than 340 million pounds of trash with the efforts of over 16 million volunteers.


A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, we would not be able to do the cleanups without them. Through their sponsorship dollars we were able to supply volunteers with trash bags, gloves, t-shirts, and trash pickers.

We are always looking for volunteer captains to host sites.  If you are interested in being a Captain or volunteering in general you can contact us at .  You can participate in cleanups at any time by picking up trash on your own - unfortunately it can be found in most places.  Thank you for caring and for doing your part to protect our planet and Keep Pasco Waters Beautiful. 

Thank you to our sponsors
