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

All equipment (gloves, litter pickers, bags, clipboards & surveys) will be provided but do feel free to bring your own too. Please dress for the weather and bring warm layers and sturdy shoes.

There are public toilets near to the meeting point and free public parking at: Cramond Beach car park, Glebe Road, Cramond, EH4 6NU.

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.
