The Great Gibraltar Beach Cleans

 

We will be running the 45th Great Gibraltar Beach Clean. This was launched in February 2017 and to date 42 beach cleans have taken place covering all our coastline. The plastic debris retrieved at these events is normally between 60kg to 100kg with as much as 420kg removed at a single event. We work with the local recycling plant so all the rubbish removed does not end up in either landfill of the sea, instead it is weighed, sorted and recycled.

Further we have also organised a school competition open to all local students - event attached.

The Nautilus Project have been supporting your movement since it's launch in June 2019 so this will be our 3rd year!
