Berkeley Shoreline Cleanup
The International Shoreline Clean Up will take place in Berkeley at the mouth of three creeks, and along our east shoreline and all around the Berkeley Marina. This is a great opportunity for parents and kids to work together on cleaning up the environment, and is also a popular opportunity to earn service-learning credit!
Clean-up — Mouth of Strawberry creek
At the 2012 Clean Up, over 4,232 plastic bags were collected from the Berkeley Shoreline, qualifying Berkeley as a “Plastic Hot Spot” by Save the Bay. Waste reduction plays an important role in helping to keep the City’s shorelines clean and achieve our Climate Action Plan goals.
Groups of 10 or more need to to preregister by calling 510-981-6720.
If you are bringing children under 18 here to do a cleanup, please have their parents sign the Children’s Waiver (available on website) form for the day of your cleanup. All children must be accompanied by an adult. We will also have waivers available on the day of the Cleanup.
9:00 a.m. Registration and Orientation
Everyone is encouraged to start at 9 a.m., registration will close at 10:30, so get an early start.
All groups and individuals unless other wise informed, should meet at the Berkeley staging area located behind the Seabreeze Market at the corner of University and Frontage Rd. Here, everyone needs to sign waivers, receive safety information, and get directions to the various clean-up locations.
We are asking everyone to bring their own reusable gloves and buckets. We do not want to generate more trash doing the clean-up than we actually pick up! But if you forget, that’s okay– we will give you trash/recycle bags, pencils, tally cards and a map of the areas we need to clean.
Noon: Cleanup Ends!
At this point, turn in your tally cards at the main staging area and show us your most unusual items for judging. Each person who turns in the completed data card will get a ticket to be part of our raffle, which starts by 12:15. Great Items are donated by local merchants- If you would like to donate, let us know.
