Cleanup Best Practices
- Split recyclables and trash into separate bags
- Tie trash bags and dispose in dumpsters (beware overflowing bins: they can cause items to fly away and end up back in the water)
- Don’t pick up weapons or anything that looks like it came from a hospital. Mark questionable items and inform your organizer or the lifeguard.
- If it occurs naturally in nature — like kelp, shells, driftwood — leave it be (try not disrupt animals and plants in the area)
- Know your cleanup zone boundaries and meeting times
- Take note of the nearest lifeguard station and know what to do in case of an emergency
