Let’s go to the beach — and clean up
STPS has brought back its beach cleanup program, but for now the activity will be self-directed for those interested in participating.
STPS volunteers as well as community members may participate in the beach cleanup program by participating on their own at a time and location of their choice and then notifying STPS of the completed activity.
This is the safest and simplest way for STPS to get interested volunteers and community members back to cleaning up Brevard County beaches while COVID-19 concerns continue. For those who choose to participate, please follow current STPS and CDC guidelines for masking and social distancing. STPS guidelines limit in-person activities to groups of no more than 10.
STPS participates with Keep Brevard Beautiful through the adoption of two sites, Coconut Point Park and Cherie Down Park. The monthly cleanups at these locations have been canceled since April 2020. Participants in the self-directed cleanups may choose these locations or any other beach within Brevard County.
By notifying the beach cleanup coordinator of participation, STPS can report the information to Keep Brevard Beautiful.
When you have completed a beach cleanup activity, please email the following information along with a photo of the cleanup participants and trash collected to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Name of participant(s)
- Date and location of cleanup
- Hours of the cleanup
- Number of bags collected
- List of any large items not suitable to be bagged
A photo of the participants with the trash collected is required if participants would like to receive community service credit. Please include each student’s name and school.
Active STPS volunteers also may record their activity in the VIC system.
