We are now just one week away from the Twin Ports Virtual Coastal Cleanup that will be held next Saturday, and the City of Duluth is encouraging the public to mark their calendars.


Participants are encouraged to clean up their favorite parks and beaches, as well as their neighborhoods.

The City of Duluth partnered with the City of Superior to make it happen.

"This is a part of an international effort project, and so we're really excited to see the impact not only in Duluth, but across our state and across the world," said City of Duluth Public Information Officer Kate Van Daele.

Organizers hope to see 1,000 people participate in the event.

Participants have the chance to win prizes from Duluth and Superior businesses by submitting their clean-up results through the Twin Ports Coastal Clean-Up Litter Report.
