Cleaning up Tybee one bucket at a time
Cleaning up Tybee one bucket at a time

We try to hold 'standing' beach cleanings every (or from November to March, every-other) Sunday afternoon, weather permitting, in addition to separately scheduled group sweeps. Since we rotate our locations to ensure we clean all of Tybee's 3 mile stretch of beach, please check here to find out where and when we'll next be cleaning, or email tybeecleanbeach@gmail.com to join our email group.

If you are planning to join us, go to the announced meeting location, come to the Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers sign-in table, pick up a bucket & grabber and parking pass, and hit the beach for as long as you like, typically an hour. When finished, simply leave the full bucket and grabber by the table, since we sort through and recycle as much of the trash as possible. Dress according to the latest forecast, and bring a reusable water bottle (please - no plastic bottles!)

Pretty simple, very satisfying!
