Community Cleanups

Let’s Keep Our Community Clean.
After working to reduce our waste production, the next step is to pick up after our fellow humans. Walking for a few hours to remove litter is an easy action, but it has a huge impact! Let’s work together to give our community a fighting chance.

Our Corner hosts many community and beach cleanups throughout the year. To participate in an upcoming event, checkout our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

Host a Beach Cleanup

Our Corner will provide your group with the resources necessary to complete your very own cleanup on the beach.
If there are less than 12 participants, it is not necessary for a staff member to accompany your group, unless requested.

Plan in Advance

Our cleanup equipment is lent out on a first-scheduled, first-served basis so it is highly recommended to coordinate with us at least one month in advance. The most popular spot that is requested is Pensacola Beach.

Schedule Your Cleanup

Call us at 850-438-1178 or email us at volunteer@keeppensacolabeautiful.org to express your interest. Please provide the date, time, requested location, and the estimated number of volunteers that will be in attendance.

Choose Your Location

Typically, Our Corner will suggest conducting a cleanup at either Park East or Park West as they are locations without consistent litter removal by Gulf Island National Seashore or Santa Rosa Island authority staff members. While beach cleanups can provide stunning scenery and lots of vitamin D, they also require more intense safety precautions. These regulations are outlined here.
