2020 Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup

The Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup is happening Sunday, September 20 from 12pm to 3pm, and we can't do it without your help!


Volunteers can sign up to clean up at our public road ends and shorelines during the 12p to 3p (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! Please note: Road Ends were originally designed for community access, so many have limited parking. If the space appears to be full when you arrive please select another site.


Yay! We love groups (as long as they are following social distancing guidelines and current group size guidance which is 5 or fewer)!  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.


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!


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 (line of debris left behind at high tides) for plastics 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.


We suggest bags or buckets and gloves. You can borrow buckets and pick up bags from our team at the Miller Rd gravel lot just north of New Brooklyn Road, starting at 11:30 am on the event day.


If its a small amount please feel free to bring it home and dispose of it in your can. If you picked up orange litter bags from us, you can you can bring your collected trash, or large items you cannot easily dispose of at home, to the Miller Rd gravel lot  by 3:30pm.


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!


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! 


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!!


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!
