The UK's first underwater clean-up group
Collecting marine litter since 2005
Collaborating on solutions
An award winning charity helping to keep the underwater world litter free since 2005
Welcome to the website of Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners, the UK’s first underwater clean-up group. Whilst litter washed up or left on our shoreline can be seen, the same cannot always be said for marine litter that is below the surface of the ocean. Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners are volunteer divers with a passion for carrying out clean-up dives, raising awareness of the impacts and working on collaborative solutions. The registered charity has carried out over 2000 clean-up dives and worked with a number of partners in the UK and overseas.
What we find and the impacts.
What People Say About Us
“NARC volunteers do a superb job of clearing the seabed of litter including miles of angling line, bucket loads of lead weights and 100’s of fishing pots. The litter if not cleared can kill and damage marine life. Public awareness of the damage caused by marine litter is needed and NARC plays a key role in promoting the awareness through their work.”
Kate Lock, Natural Resources Wales (Skomer Marine Conservation Zone)
Sue Burton Pembrokeshire SAC Officer (Special Area of Conservation)
“NARC have made an invaluable contribution to the Pride in Our Communities project within bbbbPembrokeshire. They have raised the awareness of the problem of fly-tipping around our waterways and undertaken activities to clean up the mess. The divers have willingly and consistently given their time to help improve our local environment.”
