23rd September 2023 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Come along and join our Scotland North Regional Group for this in-person beach clean up event that has being organised to help stop harmful litter from reaching the ocean and collect vital data that MCS can use to bring about positive change for our seas.

This beach clean is part of the Great British Beach Clean and will involve a litter survey.


Location: Aberdeen City Beach - At the north end of Aberdeen City Beach esplanade.

What to bring: MCS recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear:
If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s:
To comply with MCS insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
