The event, organised by the States’ Eco Active initiative to support the Plastic Free Jersey project, takes place at Havre des Pas on Sunday between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm and will include a silent disco for those taking part.
The quirky seaside clean-up was inspired by a similar event in Brighton earlier this year.
Jane Burns, Eco Active’s programme manager, said: ‘We have a student on placement with us this summer who saw the event in Brighton and was keen for us to host our own.
She has taken on organising this event and we are really excited to see how it pans out in Jersey.
‘We hope the disco element will make this beach clean a little bit different.’
She added: ‘We chose Havre des Pas as the lifeguards at the pool have the first of our beach cleaning boards. These boards have been made for us at the Prison and hold reusable bags and litter pickers so that people visiting the pool and beach can carry out their own beach clean whenever they like.’
The regional representative for Surfers Against Sewage, which runs the Plastic Free Jersey initiative, Linzi Hawkin, said: ‘One of the criteria for Plastic Free Jersey status looks at our “on-the-ground actions”, so it’s important we get people involved in a variety of different ways. The silent disco might appeal to people who haven’t been involved with an activity like this before. Please dress for the weather as well as for the activity, and remember to bring your own reusable water bottle.’
At Brighton’s silent disco beach-clean, litter pickers were issued with headsets to listen to music while they removed unwanted items from the shore.
