ADIMS 15th Annual Denman Island
Community Beach Cleanup
September 21 to 28, 2019

The Drop Off and Sorting Event will be Saturday, September 28, at the Old School Recycling area, 9.30 am – 1 pm.  There will be a hot lunch for volunteers.

Our community goal is to clean every shoreline on Denman Island again this year! Please join us to help protect our oceans — sign up at our registration table, or by email.

Sign up!

ADIMS will have a table at the Saturday Market, September 14 and 21, the two Saturdays before Beach Cleanup Week. You can register there and sign the participant’s form.

  • You can choose to clean a specific area of shoreline, or join one of our boating, trucking or sorting teams.
Clean up!

You can clean your designated shoreline area anytime during the week, to suit schedules and tides.

  • Volunteers need to provide their own gloves, but ADIMS will have burlap sacks available for debris.

You can drop off debris any time during the week at the designated area on the Old School grounds. Please email ADIMS if you need pickup assistance or information.

Sort and recycle

On the final day—Saturday September 28—we will load the sorted debris onto trucks and trailers. Everything collected will go to the Ocean Legacy recycling plant, or will be recycled locally.

After 11 am, participants are welcome to take any reusable items from the pile, before the loading starts.


It’s a co-operative effort

We will be joined again this year with our neighbouring communities in a joint Big Beach Cleanup, to clean all the shorelines of Baynes Sound and Lambert Channel. Neighbouring participants include Hornby Conservancy, BC Shellfish Growers, and the Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans.

The Denman Island event is sponsored by the Association for Denman Island Marine Stewards (ADIMS), and is registered with the Vancouver Aquarium’s Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

Help protect our local waters from the negative impacts of plastic and marine debris!
