The Year-Round Coastal Cleanup Programme

Besides the annual International Coastal Cleanup Singapore, Organisers from schools, institutions, corporate or other groups are always welcome to organise cleanups at any other time of the year on their own, with some advise from us, after reading ICCS’ Guidelines for Organisers. And be sure to pick a low tide (less than 1.5m) using this tide table from MobileGeographics.

These Year-Round Coastal Cleanups (YRCC) do not require the use of the data cards but we count the total number of black trash bags are counted and weighed to provide a gauge of the trash load at sites year-round. This information should be included in reports with photos to ICCS for inclusion in this blog in order to raise awareness and to provide acknowledgement for these year-round efforts.

There are four types of beaches (Categories A to D) you can tackle on your own. Please see “Suggestions for Year Round Coastal Cleanups

You can also time your cleanups to celebrate local and international environment occasions, such as:

  • 02 Feb – World Wetlands Day
  • 22 Mar – Singapore World Water Day
  • 22 Apr – Earth Day
  • 06 May – Op We Cleanup
  • 22 May – World Biodiversity Day
  • 23 May – World Turtle Day
  • 05 Jun – World Environment Day
  • 08 Jun – World Oceans Day
  • 09 Aug – National Day
  • 27 Sep – World Tree Day
  • 04 Oct – World Animal Day
  • 21 Nov – World Animal Day
  • Some of the Year Round Cleanups are opened to the public and you can join us – to be kept informed, sign up with our mailing list, or follow us on this blog, twitter or Facebook page.
