Beach Cleanups

Want to get involved in a cleanup or conduct one yourself? 

It’s easy! Contact Let’s Talk Trash (info@letstalktrash.ca, 604.485.2260 ext 308) and then stop by to pick up a sorting and event manual.

Marine debris continues to litter our coastlines. More than 100,000 marine mammals die each year due to plastic ingestion or entanglement. If you’re keen to help clean it up we can support your efforts!   You can choose to organize a clean up event or simply go out yourself on any occasion.

Contact us to find out what items and material can be collected separately for recycling.  There is a central collection facility where items can be dropped off year-round to help assist clean up efforts.  Please get in touch with us to find out more!

We work with The Ocean Legacy Foundation to reuse and recycle as much marine material as possible.  Funding is available to cover the costs of transporting materials to the lower mainland for recycling, any landfilling and possible fuel costs associated with clean up efforts.

THANK YOU to all volunteers for past beach clean ups, especially co-ordinators, Paul Leighton, Ben Reiman, and Kirk Franske for making local clean ups possible!  Here’s to another season of big cleanup efforts to keep our coastline plastic free!
