Cleaning Up Safely

In order to make our community cleanups as safe as possible, we’ll be adhering to all local COVID-19 regulations along with the following protocol:

• Adjusted event capacity

• Verbal symptom screenings upon arrival

• Sanitization supplies for all volunteers

• Elimination of large group photos and briefings

    More Information

  • Additionally, we are eliminating elements of our events that involve congregating, such as the group photo and group briefings. Instead, volunteers will be broken into small groups upon arrival and will work within their small group for the duration of the cleanup.

  • We provide all cleanup supplies, including trash/recycling bags and gloves. We also provide water, sunscreen, bug spray, and hand sanitizer. At community cleanup events, volunteers will receive a free stainless steel water bottle.

    We recommend wearing long pants and closed-toe shoes to our cleanups. You are welcome to bring your own trash-picker if you’d like!

  • Of course! Our reusable, communal cleanup supplies are industrially cleaned between uses, however, we welcome volunteers to bring their own supplies (thick gloves, trash bags, etc.) if they feel more comfortable doing so.

  • Yes! Please bring a mask for any potential close proximity situations. Depending on the cleanup’s location, local regulations, and the status of the virus, masks may be required for parts of the event. When out in the field and spread out, masks will not be required unless regulations require them.

  • Vaccinations are highly encouraged among volunteers, but we will not ask for verification or require them.

  • Unless specified in the event description, we welcome all ages and abilities at our cleanup events. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian pre-register for the cleanup on their behalf ahead of time in order to sign our Minor Waiver, or, come to the cleanup accompanied by a parent or guardian. For volunteers under the age of 14, we ask that a parent/guardian attend the cleanup with the Minor regardless.

    If you have questions/concerns regarding the accessibility of the cleanup location, please reach out to cleanup@unitedbyblue.com prior to the event to discuss accommodations.

  • Before each cleanup, we determine the safest and most sustainable way to dispose of the marine debris and coastline trash that we haul in. 

    We recycle clean, newer plastics, glass, and cardboard with local recyclers. If we can’t work with the local municipality for this service, we pay out of pocket for private, responsible, and traceable recyclers. 

    If/when we encounter specialized materials, like metals, batteries, electronics, etc., we contact specialized recyclers and pay for their proper disposal. 

    For items that cannot be recycled or composted, we properly dispose of all trash and debris with a local landfill.

  • We always welcome walk-ins to our cleanups! If pre-registration fills up, feel free to just show up the morning of the cleanup. We’ll be sure to have extra cleanup supplies for you.

  • We welcome event partners that help amplify our cleanup events in the following ways: 

    Promotional (assists with recruiting 40+ volunteers per cleanup through marketing, social media, etc.)Educational (adds a relevant educational component to the cleanup) Logistical (adds a necessary component to the event structure, like permits, location scouting, catering, etc.)

    If you think your company / organization fits one of these categories, please reach out to cleanup@unitedbyblue to chat further! 


    Note: We always welcome corporate groups / organizations to volunteer at our cleanups with no obligation other than showing up. If you’re just looking for a way to get out in your community, I encourage you to join us at a cleanup near you! For groups larger than 30, please contact cleanup@unitedbyblue.com at least 2 weeks prior to the cleanup to coordinate.
