Recycling Program

We have a recycling program at some locations, if you are interested in helping us reduce the amount of debris that goes to the landfill ask your registration station coordinator how you can help. At some locations we are collecting hard plastics to send to TerraCycle to make shampoo bottles. In other locations we are recycling materials more locally.

If we are not collecting recycling at your location, you are welcome to take recyclables back home with you. However, please be aware that most recycling companies will not accept highly degraded items or anything filled with wet sand or other beach muck. They only want the really clean household stuff like yogurt cups and plastic water bottles. If you take any debris back with you, be sure to bag it up tightly (stinky), keep it away from curious kids and dogs (messy), and don’t take any glass or sharp metal (safety hazard – ouch!).

Camping

Camp sites along the North Coast are available via Clallam County Parks at Dungeness Recreation Area and Salt Creek Recreation Area.

Other Information

Tides, beach logs. The site is not ADA accessible and facilities, other than highway pull-outs, are not available.

Basic Safety Guideline

  • Wear gloves, proper clothing, and water-resistant shoes.
  • Do not touch medical waste, dead animals, hazardous materials or sharp objects. If you are uncertain about an item, do not touch it.
  • Do not approach wildlife.
  • Report hazardous items that cannot be removed to event staff.
  • Work with a partner.
  • Be careful of unstable banks, steep slopes, or slippery surfaces.
  • Do not try to lift anything that is too heavy for you. Ask for help!
  • Watch for poison oak, plants with thorns, or other natural hazards.
  • Watch for any trucks or equipment that might be used in the project.
  • When driving on the beach (State Parks only), stay on compacted sand. Do not drive into sand that is very soft or very wet.

Debris Data Program

Debris data programThe amount and type of debris you find on our beaches gives evidence of its globally diverse sources and its impact on ocean ecosystems. Help us analyze what it all means by participating in our data collection program. If you will be at the cleanup with a group, please download our Debris Data Card and fill out as you clean the beach (also available at check in). One group member should fill out the form while others call out their findings. After the cleanup, simply go online and transfer your findings to our debris database. Collective results will be available online to anyone seeking to understand and reduce the effects of marine debris.
