On Sunday April 23rd 2023 at 11am, the Recycling and Conservancy Societies will host their annual beach clean-up here on Mayne Island. These clean-ups have always been a popular activity, with often a hundred volunteers clearing a ton or more of debris from our beaches. If you would like to join us on April 23rd, contact a captain at one of the phone numbers or email address listed below! And please bring your own gloves and container to collect debris in.
For over two decades the Recycling Society, in partnership with the Mayne Island Conservancy has led an annual one day clean-up of beaches on Mayne Island. Held in the springtime, this massive volunteer effort combs all of our popular beaches, removing the flotsam and jetsam. Typically over a ton of debris is removed, brought to the depot, where it is sorted and weighed, and then trucked off island for disposal. This fun activity not only leaves our beaches beautiful for our residents and visitors, but removes hazardous wastes from the marine environment.
Contact a team captain today and join us in the cleanup!
