Frequently asked questions

Do I need to sign up ahead of time?

No, you can “just show up” in the morning and sign in. Its that simple!

Can I bring my kids, friends or a group?

Yes. For groups of 20+, just contact us and let us know how many you expect to have. Please read through the rest of the FAQ’s below before emailing. Kids of all ages are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We cannot watch anyone once they are dropped off or cleaning the beach.

What do you provide?

We provide bags, gloves, tabulating sheets (to keep longitudinal track of litter data), water and fruit.

Do I need to bring anything?

No, but if you have work gloves and a bucket, bring them. (Water, Hat, Sunblock)

Do I have to stay the whole two hours?

No. You can help out for any length of time.

Can you sign my volunteer hours sheet ?

We would love to…but you MUST show us that you participated.

Do I have to pay for parking?

Possibly, depending on the cleanup location.

Do your beach cleanups change locations?

Yes, we are moving our beach cleanups around quite a bit this year to clean a larger area of our beaches. Always check the locations here before heading down to the cleanup.

Do you ever cancel or reschedule a beach cleanup due to Weather?

Our Beach Clean Ups are rarely canceled due to weather. Should such be the case, it will be posted on our website and Facebook as well as sent out in our email.

All volunteers are welcome to participate and must sign a Liability Waiver that will be available at the beach for you to sign.
