Beach Clean – A few Guidelines

Beach Clean – A few Guidelines

We want you to enjoy your walk and hope that you gain a sense of achievement, but please read the following points carefully:

  • Check the tide time and height of the tide as this may affect your walk. You can do that here.
  • If possible use a litter picker (available from the RSPB office) and gloves.
  • Pick up only plastic, rope or other light items.
  • Never touch any glass, metal, or manufactured wood (which may contain rusty nails) as sharp objects may cause injury.
  • Beware of stepping on nails in wood while walking on the beach.
  • If you are not sure what a metal object is, report its approximate whereabouts to the RSPB office.
  • Only carry what you comfortably can in the bags from Armstrong Waste Management Ltd – available from the RSPB office.
  • Please tie the bags and leave them at the litter pick up point. If it is windy, please place a stone on top of the bag, or jam your bag to prevent it from decanting what you have picked up.
  • Always wash your hands after any beach clean and before you eat anything.


Thank you for helping keep our beach clean.
