Find a beach clean

Thanks for your interest in our beach cleans and litter surveys!

For the last year we have had to run closed, private beach cleans because of coronavirus guidelines. As lockdown eases, more public events will be added and these pages will fill up, but at the moment they are a bit empty so don’t worry if there is not a beach clean near you.

If you can’t find a local beach clean, why not add your own? Or if you would rather take part in an organised one, please do come back to this page as more are added and find a public event you can join.
