BI Beach Cleanup

2019 Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup

The Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup is happening Saturday, September 28 from 10am to 2pm, and we can't do it without your help!

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

Volunteers can sign up to cleanup at our public road ends and shorelines during the 10am to 2pm (corresponding with low tide) time window. The slots in this signup list public road ends and shorelines in a clockwise direction starting from the north end of the Island. Please click here for a map  of all these areas (please note the map may have some additional road ends; the ones we list below are those we consider accessible, eg, not high bank or tough to access). Pick the spot you want, or add your own location in the open slots. We encourage you to find an area meaningful to you, or choose a location without a lot of commitments to help us ensure coverage!

HOW DO I REGISTER A GROUP?

Yay! We love groups!  Put your own name in the slot as the group lead, and then tell us in the comments how many people in your group are participating.  It’s okay to estimate.

THERE ARE ALREADY A LOT OF VOLUNTEERS FOR THE AREA I’M INTERESTED IN.  WHAT NOW?

We love this “problem!”  You can either pick a different spot, or you are always welcome, and encouraged, to remove litter on our roadsides- everything flows downstream, and trash removal further up the watershed helps our whole Island!

I'M NOT SURE WHERE ON THE BEACH TO CLEAN UP?

Bainbridge Island's shoreline is a mix of public and private property. We've identified public road ends and beaches in our map and list below so that we are focusing on publicly accessible areas. Please stay on the beach and off of lawns and shoreline vegetation -HOWEVER- if you are at a public road-end or beach, we really encourage you to make sure you're looking high up into the wrack line for debris too. Do not pick up debris if you are not sure if it belongs to an upland owner; if you happen onto private property and are asked to leave by a homeowner, please respect their wishes.

NEED SUPPLIES?

You can bring your own bags, buckets and gloves, or pick some up from our team at the Miller Rd gravel lot just north of New Brooklyn Road, starting at 10:00 am on the event day.

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE TRASH I'VE COLLECTED?

If its a small amount please feel free to bring it home and dispose of it in your can. Otherwise you can bring your collected trash (particularly large items you cannot easily dispose of at home) to Miller Rd gravel lot  before 2:30pm.

WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN A GLOBAL OCEAN TRASH TALLY?

Our event is part of a global effort led by Ocean Conservancy and they would love to know what you collected! Download a mobile phone app that lets you share data about the trash you collect; results will be compiled for our Island and for the global event and help us learn more about what kinds of debris we are keeping out of our oceans!

I’M A SHORELINE PROPERTY OWNER AND ALREADY CLEAN UP MY BEACH.

Thank you for your continued stewardship!  If you would like to participate in this year’s Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup, and have your trash count towards this global tally, please join us this year and sign-up on an open slot, listing your location.  We want to honor and note your efforts! 

CAN WE SHARE YOUR GOOD DEEDS?

We're hoping to have media coverage for this event and also we organizers will be out taking pictures. We're hoping you'll agree that media images or statements taken by any Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup representative of you or your family as Event participants may be used by Sustainable Bainbridge or Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup event partners for  publicity, education, marketing and/or advertising purposes. By signing up, you will consent to and authorize such use without restriction and understand that you will not receive compensation should any such image or statement be used in this way. BUT- if you see us out there taking pictures and you don't want to be in the picture, please just let us know!!

I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS.  WHOM DO I CONTACT?

If you have questions please visit the Sustainable Bainbridge Beach Cleanup Page for FAQs and more information, or contact us at [email protected]

Thank you for doing your part to keep our beaches healthy and beautiful!
