2020 Superior Virtual Coastal Cleanup

FaithMcGraw_JennyVanSickleThis is an annual event that has changed little due to COVID. We've made this event safer and easier for you! The forms are now online (listed below) along with additional information. 

The City of Superior, invites everyone, as you are safely able to do so, to spend some time during the month of September 2020 cleaning your neighborhood or favorite waterway (but at a safe social distance). Let's work together to keep our waterways and neighborhoods clean!


A month-long event in September 2020 


Near your favorite waterway, be it Lake Superior or a neighborhood creek OR around your neighborhood (the Twin Ports is really just a giant watershed with everything leading to the lake)!

Important Note: Please be safe for yourself and others. If you’re with other people or in a public space, follow safe, social distancing practices: work 6 feet away from another person unless they are a member of your household. 


Superior residents have pride in their city, community, and unique home located right next to Lake Superior. We have to work together to keep our favorite places, like our neighborhood stream, walkway, or beach. And we all know that helping out a neighbor has always left us feeling good. Join in the effort to keep our community safe and clean!

The Superior Coastal Cleanup is what we call our local event, but it is, in fact, part of a global project called The International Coastal Cleanup. Since the Cleanup began in 1986, nearly 12 million people – all volunteers – from more than 90 countries and 55 US states and territories have taken hands-on action to clean shores around the planet. The Cleanup’s effectiveness continues long after the last bag of trash is hauled away and the tired volunteers go home. Many cleanups plant the seeds for local recycling campaigns, public education programs, adopt-a-beach programs, and even stormwater system overhaul and legislative reform.
