Great Islands Clean-Up

Be a Superhero for Planet Earth! 2020 Fall Great Islands Clean-up September 28 – October 4

We’re asking Superheroes of all ages to unite and help us clean-up our islands during this year’s Fall Great Islands Clean-up! The event will be a week-long household/individual effort beginning September 28 and running through October 4, 2020. This is an opportunity for our community to get outside, get some exercise, and help make our islands plastic and litter-free by the sea. 

In keeping with San Juan County’s Phase 2 guidelines, masks will be required, participants should practice social distancing, and there will be no congregating. 

If you would like to be assigned a pick-up location ahead of time on San Juan Island, contact Katie Fleming at katie@sanjuans.org to sign-up for beaches and Aaron Rock at aaronrock87@gmail.com to sign-up for roads.

Bags, grabbers, safety vests, and gloves will be available at the San Juan County Public Works office at 915 Spring Street during the week before the event. Litter picked-up on San Juan Island can be dropped off free of charge during regular office hours at the Lautenbach Transfer Station (212 Sutton Rd.), Friday – Sunday 9 am – 4 pm, and Monday from 9 am – 12 pm.

There will be litter clean-up events happening on Orcas, San Juan, Lopez and Shaw Islands. Visit plasticfreesalishsea.org/events to register and for more information about the events on all these islands.
