“Clean Ocean Access has enhanced the community and coastal environment for all residents and visitors to Aquidneck Island, which benefits us in all aspects of our lives from the enjoyment of the area when sailing to walking beaches to the value of our home to feeling connected with our community in supporting something greater than ourselves” – PETER HOWLAND, PORTSMOUTH, RI

Donate Your Vehicle

Did you know the ocean absorbs approximately 30% of all carbon emissions released into the air? This process contributes to ocean acidification which threatens our sea life and the overall health of our waters. You can make a positive environmental impact today by reducing your carbon emissions and donating your old car to Clean Ocean Access. Click here to learn more.
