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

We try to hold 'standing' beach cleanings every week (or from November to March, every-other), 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, sign-in at the Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers table, pick up a bucket & grabber and parking pass if needed, and hit the beach for as long as you like, typically an hour (if you’re new - ask how!). 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!

Remember to send an email to tybeecleanbeach@gmail.com to join our email list.

**parking passes available unless noted otherwise, you must leave a valid cell phone number to use a City parking pass**
