How to Monitor the Beach:
1.Find your partners: Choose a team leader and volunteers; make a contact list.
2.Decide the clean-up location and the range of it.
3.Make a set time to work, mainly on weekends.
4.Meet first at an easily found location: Pick a place that everyone is familiar with, so new volunteers can easily join you.
5.Carpool to get there! Be environment friendly!
6. Each volunteer takes a bag and pick up the litter he/she finds on the beach. Then put all the litter bags together in a place and empty the bags to collect data. Volunteers can also choose a particular trash, such as Styrofoam or glass bottles, to collect and count the numbers at the same time. Next, they can directly record the data instead of taking out the litter and count again.
7.After the litter is taking out, each volunteer picks one kind of litter to count and then report the data to the record keeper.
8.Finally, take the rubbish bags to the side of the road, and inform the environmental protection bureau to transport them.
1.Do not get into the water. (unless it’s a particular under water clean-up)
2.Wear covered-toe shoes or rain boots; wear gloves.
3.Bring sun protection and drinking water.
4.If you get injured and have inflamed wounds, please go to the hospital immediately.
Things to Bring for the Clean-up Team
1.Water for hand wash and soap. Have volunteers wash hands before they leave.
2.Bring large litter bags, and reuse them as much as you can.
3.Record sheets and pens. Put a board under the sheets for easier hand writing.
4.First aid kit, just in case.
