Join us for a beach clean and litter survey to help the Marine Conservation Society gather vital data to keep pushing for the reduction of marine litter.

There are public toilets close to the meeting point and parking at Cramond Beach Car Park Cramond Glebe Rd, Cramond, Edinburgh EH4 6NU.

Please dress for the weather with layers, waterproof jacket if needed, sturdy shoes and gloves. All other litter picking equipment provided.

Also worth knowing…

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
