First thing’s first, start where you are – this is gang work, and we are grateful for you!

Step 1 –
Pick a date and time and choose your location.
you don’t need to live on a beach to start a clean-up!
Think globally, act locally – step outside and explore the trash world right outside of your door or pick a location that isn’t being addressed by another local effort near you.
is your local beach dirty?
is your river lined with garbage?
local park littered with snack trash?
Pick the place that has meaning to you,
that you can visualize beautiful and clean – make it happen
the world is yours!

Step 2 –
Gather your trash tools
Check your home to find tools for the clean-up:
grocery bags,
compostable bags,
black garbage bags,
bins or buckets,
reusable bags,
reusable or single use trash gloves
hand sanitizer
face mask/covering
positive mental attitude

Step 3 –
make a plan for the trash disposal
will you be using public cans or a dumpster?
Research local landfill / disposal spots near you

Step 4 –
Take precaution and safety when cleaning

items to avoid:
Needles
toxic waste
broken glass
sharp objects
hazardous and corrosive objects

Step 5 –
Assemble your team
Ask a friend or family member to join the fun

Step 6 –
Stay safe gang
Avoid high (car) traffic areas
avoid use of headphones
