BeachPatrol is a litter collection volunteer group spread over many postcodes.

Within each postcode there is a group of locals who pick up litter from their beaches or streets or parks once a month. The litter is mostly plastic items. The aim is to stop them getting into the ocean and prevent harm to wildlife.

The data collection and distribution is a key part of what BeachPatrol performs. We use this data to advocate for changes that will reduce litter.

Limited collection bags provided or participants can bring their own in case of COVID concerns. Participants can bring their own gloves too if they wish to use gloves. Attendees will get to meet local people of like minds.
