1st Saturday Cleanup at Tower 74 (Olive St)
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND ENSURE YOU SIGN UP ONLY IF YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU CAN ATTEND. Registration on the Eventbrite page and a digital waiver are required, and space is limited for COVID-19 safety.
Join us for our return to public beach cleanups! We have guidelines and precautions for compliance with safety measures due to COVID-19, and we are grateful for support and collaboration with the City of Newport Beach, which allow us to return to hosting these public events.
There are inherent risks involved when participating in in-person and public events, including risks associated with COVID-19. Participation in a cleanup is voluntary and solely at a participant’s own risk, including risk of exposure, infection, and illness from COVID-19. Individuals should only participate to the extent that they are healthy and can comply with physical distancing and applicable federal, state, and local rules and restrictions. We do require a waiver to be signed before you participate.
Please review and be prepared to agree to participate according to the guidelines.
What to bring: a face mask, reusable water bottle, sunscreen, hat/sunglasses, closed-toe shoes (highly recommended), and clothing appropriate for the weather. While we will have supplies, we encourage you to bring your own gloves and buckets, if you have them.
Meet us at our blue tent by Lifeguard Tower 74 by Olive Street (see the map). We will start with a short orientation about the beach and the type of trash you’ll come across, and we will ask you to collect data on your trash collected by the end of the event.
Please register only if you are sure you can commit, so we can avoid no-shows.
Street parking and paid city lots are available nearby. The beach is also easily accessibly by bike – there’s a lane just for cyclists on Seashore Drive. OCTA Route 1 also stops nearby on PCH. Restrooms and water fountains are located at Orange Street, the nearest cross street with PCH.
