You’ll often see us out litter picking along the beach and prom. We also organise monthly community litter picks.

Monthly beach cleans

Our regular beach cleans – organised in conjunction with the Burntisland Community Development Trust – are on the first Sunday of each month. Come and help keep our town clean, and meet other folk doing the same thing.

Registering your details

As this is an organised event, we need to collect the details of everyone who comes along, for Contact Tracing in case someone tests positive for Covid-19. It’s easier all round if you can register your details in advance – then we can just tick you off the list. If you haven’t registered, we’ll need to take your details when you arrive.

When and where?

Meet at The Beach House at 10:30am on the first Sunday of the month and check in with us. Please stay 2 metres away from other participants when queuing.

Volunteers cleaning the beach

From there, everyone will be allocated an area of the beach and/or Links (depending on the tide times, rubbish levels, and how many people have come along).

Come back to The Beach House with your filled bags and we’ll sort out disposal.

Originally, we provided free hot chocolate at the end, sponsored by Grain and Sustain. Unfortunately, current rules around Covid mean we’re not able to do this, but we hope to bring it back when regulations allow.

Litter picking at other times

We’re always happy to lend out litter pickers to anyone who wants them. Just send us a message and we’ll clean some for you.

We know there are loads of people around our wee town who do their bit picking up litter, and it makes us proud.

Support the beach and links environment

Beach House owner Ariadne Cass-Maran leads the subgroup for the Beach and Links Environment as a member of the Burntisland Community Development Trust. If you’re interested in joining the subgroup, or finding out more, you can email Ari or just come and chat to her at one of the monthly beach cleans.

Thank you for helping us keep the beach clean!
