Baldwin County Cleanup Zones
Zone Captains will not be hosting the Baldwin County locations. Event coordinators are distributing donated supplies to Baldwin County disaster relief efforts. Volunteers in the Baldwin County area are encouraged to spend their time with local organizations to help communities in need.
Are you looking for an opportunity to get outside with friends and family and do something that benefits your community? If so, you are encouraged to help “get the trash out of the splash” during the 33rd Annual Alabama Coastal Cleanup. The rescheduled event will take place in Baldwin and Mobile counties from September 26-October 4, 2020.
Due to potential COVID-19 concerns, this year’s cleanup will take place over multiple days to allow volunteers to properly practice social distancing and work in small groups. Event organizers will also provide masks for up to 5,000 volunteers.
There will be three staging locations in the Orange Beach area. Come to the Boggy Point Boat Launch between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday, September 26th. Orange Beach Coastal Resources staff will be shuttling participants by boat to the islands and will make sure to follow all social-distancing guidelines (including wearing masks) while doing so!
To accommodate safety and expand the program, Coastal Cleanup participants are able to pick up supplies and clean up areas of the beach and shoreline on their own during the week - September 26-October 4. Participants will have to handle disposing of their own recycling and trash themselves if they do decide to pick up on their own.
Two other separate cleanup locations in the Orange Beach area will include Cotton Bayou Beach and the Flora-Bama on Saturday, September 26th between 8 a.m. and noon.
