Tips for a Successful Cleanup

Bring heavy work gloves if you have them, and dress for the weather and the work. Sturdy shoes or boots are recommended, as well as a hat, sunscreen and bug spray.

If you are doing your own cleanup at a location NOT shared by a CRMC, Save The Bay, or Clean Ocean Access staff member, PLEASE bring your own trash bags and take your bagged garbage with you (if this isn’t possible, you must arrange for removal through the town in which you’re conducting your cleanup).
