Keep Elbow Beach beautiful at Christmas
Keep Bermuda Beautiful is urging Christmas Day partygoers to help ensure Elbow Beach stays litter free.
Thousands of people will head to the spot on Christmas morning for one of the island’s most popular festive events.
KBB said it will supply dozens of extra trash bins to collect all the picnic debris, while volunteers will return on Boxing Day to prepare bagged trash for the Department of Parks waste collection team.
Party-goers are urged to bring an extra trash and recycling bag from home, and do their part to keep the beach beautiful.
KBB executive director Anne Hyde said: “Christmas Day at Elbow is the closest thing Bermuda has to a ‘Leave No Trace’ event.
“I am so happy that this crowd is respectful of their surroundings and, when there are plenty of bins, no one litters.
“Last year, thousands of people attended. The Department of Parks cannot be expected to do it all, especially during the holidays, so KBB has willingly stepped in to help with community service.”
On the day, the Coral Beach and Tennis Club will allow people to park on the Horizons property, and St Paul’s Anglican Church volunteers will help with free parking. Donations to the church are welcome.
The Boxing Day cleanup takes place from 10am to noon.
