PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: THERE WILL BE A SAFETY BRIEFING ON THE DAY, HOWEVER PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE ATTENDING THE EVENT ANYWAY. YOU SIGN UP ON YOUR OWN ACCORD AND GO ABOUT THE BEACH CLEAN FOLLOWING SOCIAL DISTANCING, GENERAL COMMON SENSE AND THE ADVISED SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS...

HOW LONG? We'll clean up for around 1-2 hours, dependant on the weather conditions or other factors.

WHAT TO BRING? We have plenty equipment for you to borrow but if you have your own please bring it. We have protective gloves, bin bags, bag hoops and litter pickers. All you need to bring is yourself and anything else you'll need throughout the beach clean (i.e., drink/snack, hand sanitiser, extra bin bags, etc).

WHAT TO WEAR? It's important to wear protective gloves but also to wash your hands after the beach clean! Wear appropriate footwear (there could be broken glass). Check the weather before you go (you may need a coat or woolly hat).

WHERE TO PUT THE RUBBISH? This will be decided on the day...

SAFETY BRIEFING: * Avoid direct contact with litter at all times (wear gloves & use litter picker). * Be aware of your environment and do not put yourself at risk whilst picking litter. * Do not pick when visibility is poor and only pick in daylight hours. * Do not pick up any items that cannot easily be identified or where they are clearly hazardous. Report it to the event organiser. * Do not attempt to remove dead or live animals. Report it to the event organiser. * Use a litter picking tool where possible for any sharp / hazardous items. * Any needles or drug paraphernalia needs to be left alone. Report it to the event organiser. * Clean hands thoroughly before eating food or drinking. * Rubbish should not be compressed using hands or feet as this could accidently puncture the skin. * Avoid contact with the body when carrying plastic bin bags. * Ensure any cuts or abrasions are clean and covered with a waterproof plaster. * Wear suitable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. * Stay clear of the water. * Do not overfill bin bags and avoid lifting heavy objects or sacks alone. * Follow local rules as well as our guidelines, including safe and lawful parking. * Do not confront anyone you see littering or dog fouling. * Children must be supervised at all times by their legal guardian or person(s) above age 18. * Do not allow children to wander freely, alone, and out of sight. * Work within children’s capacity – usually no more than 1 hour at a time and no more than three hours in total. * Ensure you’ve got suitable refreshments such as bottled water with you during the clean-up.

DISCLAIMER: Please note, you are responsible for your own safety and should not assume the beach clean organiser would be liable for anything that should happen to you during the beach clean. Should there be a legal dispute for any reason, the beach clean event is covered by public liability insurance.
