How to Host a Beach Cleanup

You can schedule a cleanup event with Keep Pensacola Beautiful at any time. If there are less than 20 participants, it is not necessary for a staff member to accompany your group, unless requested. You may call us at 850-438-1178 or email us at to express your interest.

Please provide the date, time, requested location, and the estimated number of volunteers that will be in attendance. 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!

Typically, KPB 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 beautiful scenery and lots of vitamin D, they also require more intense safety precautions. These regulations are outlined below.

Plan to bring:

  • A reusable water bottle. We will have water available but will not be providing cups.
  • Sun protection (sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, etc.)
  • Closed-toed shoes. You will not be allowed to participate if you are wearing flipflops or are barefoot
  • Clothing that you are okay with getting dirty. Please keep it appropriate as you will be representing you group as well as Keep Pensacola Beautiful. No bathing suits will be permitted.
