Self-Led Beach Cleans

Community Clean Up Hub

You can borrow a beach-clean kit from the Scottish Seabird Centre any weekday between 10.00 and 16.00. Volunteering your time to clean-up the coastline is a great way to help improve marine habitats and protect wildlife.

What’s in our kit?

  • A litter picker
  • A bag for the litter you find
  • Gloves
  • Some information about how you can beach-clean safely
  • Some information about the wildlife you might see along the shore

Please bear in mind that we have limited equipment which will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis.

What do you need to bring?

  • Appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather outside

After you’ve finished your beach-clean, please bring your kit and the litter you’ve collected back to the Scottish Seabird Centre. We’ll clean the kit ready to be used again and dispose of the litter, recycling it where possible.

If you want to get involved but you’re not local to the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick, why not check out the Marine Conservation Society website to see if there’s an event or a volunteering opportunity in your local area.

Borrow a beach clean kit
If you want to get involved in cleaning up the coastline on a different day of the week, contact to arrange to collect a beach clean kit/s for yourself (or for your group) at a time that suits you.

Interested in a social beach clean?
Getting together to do more for nature is a fantastic way to spend a few hours. We run regular guided, social beach cleans in North Berwick and along the East Lothian coast.
