Request a Bin
There is so much you can do to keep litter from choking our environment! Little actions such as refusing single-use plastic and reusing conainers, to big actions like spread awareness and education, and of course, having a cleanup!
We are here to provide supplies for volunteers to lead your very own, successful cleanup!
Grab some friends, family, classmates, team members, etc. and spend a morning, afternoon, or a beautilful Mississippi Gulf Coast sunset removing trash from your community. Just like we do for our cleanup events, volunteers will be required to record data about the trash removed during their cleanup(s). If you are unfamiliar with our cleanup events or if this is your first time doing a cleanup, please watch this short and sweet "how to do a cleanup" video! Volunteers can keep their bin of supplies to do one or multiple cleanups before it must be returned it to the MSCCP.
Once we receive your request, the Mississippi Coastal Cleanup team will put together a bin of supplies, giving you all you need for a successful cleanup. We will schedule a pick up time for your bin at the MSU Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi, MS.
** Please allow up to 24 hours for your request to be fulfilled. Submit your request early in the week if you plan to do a weekend cleanup so we can ensure your bin will be ready!
** Please avoid requesting a bin during scheduled events as our supplies will be prioritized at those events. You can view the event schedule here.
Supply Bins will contain:
- disposable gloves (S-XL)
- Data Collection Pack (includes clipboards, data cards, and pencils) - recording data is a requirement, and OH SO important!
- trash bags
- hand sanitizer
- first aid kit
- bucket(s) - optional
- trash grabbers - optional
Returning your Supply Bin
Once you have completed your cleanup, bins will need to be dropped off at the MSU Coastal Research and Extension Center.
