Self-led beach cleans

30 - 24 June 2022

Beach Clean Friday

You can borrow a beach-clean kit from the Scottish Seabird Centre every Friday 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.

If you are interested in participating, please read the guidance outlined in this handy health and safety document created by our friends at the Marine Conservation Society. We ask that anyone borrowing equipment from us follows current government advice regarding coronavirus. We will be putting in place special measures to make sure that the equipment we offer is thoroughly cleaned between each use.

What’s in our kit?

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?

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 conservationprojects@seabird.org to arrange to collect a beach clean kit/s for yourself (or for your group) at a time that suits you.
