Aquidneck Island Trash Skimmers

City of Newport launches the Newport Harbor Trash Skimmers for another season of improving ocean health and a big announcement!

Join the Clean Ocean Access, City of Newport and 11th Hour Racing for launch of the 2nd season of the Newport Harbor Trash Skimmers. The skimmers are a highly effective method for improving the health of Newport Harbor, the sailing capital of the world, a body of water that is used by thousands of residents and a community that is visited by an estimated 3.5 million visitors per year. The goal of the project is to reduce the amount of marine debris in the Newport harbor, increase the recreational value of the waterfront, bring awareness to the types of re-accumulating debris, and promote environmental stewardship.
