2022 Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup

The Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup is happening Saturday, September 10 from 10am to 1pm, and we can't do it without your help!

We know this is a long read, but there's lots of helpful info below that will help us make this cleanup a success!

*COVID PROTOCOLS* Please use best practices for ensuring our event is as fun and healthy as possible for all participants. If you are showing any symptoms of illness, please stay home and take care of yourself.  As this is an outdoor event risks of transmission are expected to be low, but you should always use best practices such as social distancing, and masking if you need to work in close proximity to others.

GET BEFORE YOU GO: Please download the CleanSwell App for tracking your findings and the MyCoast app for reporting large debris before you head out to clean up! More info on the apps is provided below.


Volunteers can sign up to clean up at our public road ends and shorelines between 10a and 1p (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). You can borrow buckets, trash grabbers, and  pick up bags from our team at the Miller Rd gravel lot just north of New Brooklyn Road, starting at 9:30 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 dumpster at the Miller Rd gravel lot by 1:30pm.

Did you find large debris that is too big for you or your group to haul out? Two things you can do that will be a great help: Most immediately, if you can identify and send the finding right away, text our HarborMaster, Tami Allen, at 206-786-7627 with a photo and description of the item. You can also use the free MyCoast.org app to alert Washington Department of Natural Resources so that our local 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.


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  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 a guided walk with an IslandWood naturalist!

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!
