Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers is a grass-roots organization made up of local volunteers who sweep Tybee’s beaches free of trash on a regular basis, often daily. Mermaid Cottages is proud to have been a member since its inception in 2016. We recycle or reuse as much recovered debris as possible, and are committed to working with the City of Tybee and all organizations that promote a clean and healthy beach environment to find innovative and effective ways to reduce beach trash.
We try to hold standing beach cleanings on Sunday afternoons, weather permitting, in addition to hosting group sweeps. Since we rotate our locations to ensure we clean all of Tybee’s 3 mile stretch of beach, please check here to find out where and when we’ll next be cleaning, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our Google group.
If you are planning to join us, go to the announced meeting location, look for the Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers banner, pick up a bucket & grabber, and hit the beach for as long as you like, typically an hour. When finished, simply leave the full bucket and grabber by the cart since we sort and recycle as much of the trash as possible.
