Strandliners have been conducting these surveys for 20 years and have a wealth of experience and knowledge around litter. We consider the lifecycle of plastics from production to disposal. Amongst the trash, treasures can be found washed up on the beach, including transatlantic items from the US and Canada.

There will be a general beach clean as well as the marine litter survey. and these events are always a great social occasion.

Bring a snack and a drink if you wish. Please ensure you have appropriate footwear and are prepared for the weather conditions at the time (hat, sunscreen etc).

We look forward to meeting everyone on the day and will email in the week beforehand to update about weather conditions etc.

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.
