The Great Dorset Beach Clean and Litter Free Coast and Sea Week are annual events that usually happen in April. On this page you can find out what happened at the last events and plans for the next events once they are in place.
The Great Dorset Beach Clean has been happening for over 28 years along the coast! During the event over 25 beach cleans happens at beaches along the Dorset coast over one weekend. It is a fantastic event that makes a real difference to our beaches. People taking part carry out surveys of what is found. This helps the Litter Free Coast and Sea team understand the top litter items found on our beaches. We then develop campaigns to try and reduce these items at source.
Litter Free Coast and Sea week has been happening for the last two years. We have a different theme each year which looks at ways we can all try to prevent the litter getting to our coast in the first place and ways in which we can all help improve bathing water quality.
