Annual September Coastal Cleanup

pam-hawkins-2020The City of Superior invites Superior residents to clean up their neighborhood block or favorite waterway during the month of September. Let's work together to keep our waterways and neighborhoods clean!


A month-long event in September


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)!

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.
