Annual Beach Clean-Up

April 28 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

The island-wide beach clean up returns for 2024!

Sponsored by the Recycling Society and the Conservancy, community members join up with their neighbourhood crews to tackle garbage and recycling removal from beaches around the island. The refuse is taken to the recycling depot, where it is weighed and sorted and brought to facilities off island. Cleaner plastic is brought to Ocean Legacy for a new lease on life! Last year, we were able to divert 70% of collected material to their program.

10,000 litres of plastic, Styrofoam, tires, and other garbage was removed from beaches around the island in the 2023 Annual Beach Clean-Up. Let’s see if we can break that record this time around.

AND:

This year we will have a Beach Cleanup celebration at Dinner Bay. Join us at 5pm for refreshments, fun, and prizes for these categories:

  • Weirdest item found.*
  • Nicest item found.*
  • Kid’s contribution prize (all kids 12 and under).
  • Biggest crew (Captains to record).
  • Most difference made (before and after photos).

*photos of items accepted

Please submit by 5:30pm, either at the event or via email to: stewardship@mayneconservancy.ca.
