Join staff from Marine Conservation Society and Scottish Seabird Centre to collect beach litter and contribute to our marine litter survey.

All are welcome and equipment (gloves, bags, litter pickers) will be provided. Feel free to bring your own equipment too.

Parking is available along Melbourne Road and public toilets are located on Anchor Green.

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.
