2021 Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup

The Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup is happening Sunday, September 19 from 9am to 12pm, and we can't do it without your help!

*COVID PROTOCOLS* We are currently experiencing high Covid rates in our community. Current guidance from the state recognizes that transmission risks are high, and even fully vaccinated individuals can transmit the virus. We also recognize that young children who cannot yet receive the vaccine may be participating in this event. We strongly encourage participants to bring and wear masks, particularly if they find that a cleanup area has a large number of people or they are working with a large group. Masks WILL be required for the ETAP sorting area (see signup for details).


Volunteers can sign up to clean up at our public road ends and shorelines between 9a and 12p (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. There is also a slot at the beginning if you want to clean up a place not on this list, such as your own property or a road side. 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 as appropriate)!  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 farther 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 also looking high up into the wrack line (line of debris left behind at high tides) for plastics. 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 (gardening gloves can work well). We are not supplying gloves this year. You can borrow buckets, trash grabbers, and take pick up bags from our team at the Miller Rd gravel lot just north of New Brooklyn Road, starting at 8:30 am on the event day.


If it's a small amount please feel free to bring it home and dispose of it in your trash can. If you picked up orange litter bags from us, you can bring your collected trash, or large items you cannot easily dispose of at home, to the Miller Rd gravel lot  by 12:30pm.


Two great ways to use free smartphone apps to amplify your impact:

  • 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!
  • Did you find large debris that is too big for you or your group to haul out? Use the free MyCoast.org app to alert Washington Department of Natural Resources so that our local and state agencies can find and remove the item! Examples of items that are great to report on this app are: washed-up boats or boat pieces; large buoys; styrofoam floats; creosote logs.


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  hope you will use the social media hashtag #bibeachcleanup to share your finds! If you use this hashtag and publicly post your photos, you will be entered into a drawing to win an orca adoption from the whale museum!!

We're also hoping to have media coverage for this event and 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!
