WHERE TO MEET: Locarno Beach Trimble Street Parking Lot (look for the blue Surfrider tent)

SORTING VOLUNTEERS: In addition to picking up litter, we also need volunteers to help sort the items collected into different recycling categories. When registering, please indicate if you are interested in sorting litter instead of picking it up.

WHAT TO BRING/WEAR: We will provide reusable gloves, buckets and litter pickers – however, we welcome you to bring your own as there is a limited supply. Please wear closed toe shoes such as hiking boots with either high socks or pants to cover your shins.

POST-CLEANUP SOCIAL: Stay tuned for the location… LAST BUT NOT LEAST – SAFETY FIRST: Please do not collect heavy, sharp or hazardous objects. Instead, mark the location and inform a Surfrider volunteer for safe removal. Always use a stick or trash picker when sifting to avoid sharp objects. Share your beach cleanup photos using #surfridervan We hope to see you there!
