Saltburn and Redcar’s beaches are receiving a clean-up this weekend as volunteers head to the coastline for Great British Beach Clean (15-18 September).
The national campaign is led by the Marine Conservation Society, and aims tackle waste and litter in the UK’s seas.
In support of the campaign, Saltburn Beachwatch and Marske Litter Action are undertaking a beach clean and survey on Saltburn’s coast on Saturday 16 September between 10am and 12pm.
The Local Marine Conservation Society and partners FRED (Friends of Redcar) will also be taking part on Redcar’s coast on Sunday 17 September.
As part of the ‘Love it’ campaign - which encourages people to make small changes in their community - Northumbrian Water undertook a beach clean in Saltburn last week and collected 40 bags of rubbish.
This weekend, in support of ‘Love it’, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council will be providing bags, gloves and litterpickers, and will be removing any rubbish collected by the volunteers.
