beach clean-up baskets

Help Keep Our Beach Clean with
Newly Installed Clean-up Baskets

On January 27, 2020, the Town installed beach clean-up baskets for individual use at the Ocean Bay Boulevard beach access. The clean-up baskets were placed at the beach access, in hopes that beach-goers take one with them on their walk, allowing for them to collect any litter found along the way.

The process is easy: pick up a basket, collect litter, properly dispose of collected litter in the trashcan (located next to the baskets), and return the basket to its holder.

At this time, the beach clean-up baskets can be found at the Ocean Bay Boulevard beach access, which is located at 103 South Virginia Dare Trail, in Kill Devil Hills and they are available from Labor Day until Memorial Day. Depending on interest and positive participation, the Town will evaluate additional locations and times to host clean-up baskets.

Together, we can make a difference in our environment — please help us to keep our beach clean by using one of these baskets to pick up litter (even if it’s not yours) during your beach outing.
