Great British Beach Clean

We've joined forced with Waitrose to create the biggest beach and river clean event series ever! The Great British Beach Clean is a big part of it, over the weekend of the 15th-18th September. Join an event now by clicking on the list or map below. You can organise your own - see our handy guide on how to do this. Once you've signed up, you'll get an email message from us, and a reminder before the event starts.

For the first time, many of the plastics removed from events will be sorted and recycled, giving them a second life as new products. Rigid plastic and cigarette stubs collected on cleans will be turned into shampoo bottles and advertising boards with TerraCycle.
