Miles of Beaches Cleaned and Pounds (in millions) of Floatables Removed per Year
 

A Clean Shores work crew consists of 10 inmates, 1 state correctional officer, a site manager, and woodcutter provided by the NJDEP. The inmates have received special selection for outside work by the Department of Corrections and have full minimum status.  On average, the crew works a 5-hour day arriving on site at 7:30am and leaving at 12:30pm.
