The Surfside Trash Bag Project

Volunteers started a trash bag project in Surfside Beach during the summer of 2017. This involves a list of volunteers who take an assigned section of Surfside Beach to pass out free trash bags to visitors. Each section is about 1 mile long and volunteers use their golf cart, car, or even walk to get them passed out to everyone. The “shift” takes about 1 hour.

This takes place during Spring Break and summer weekends, starting Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. The city of Surfside Beach provides the free trash bags. The trash bags have proven to greatly reduce trash on our beach and in the Gulf; and also has helped Surfside Beach city workers empty beach trash cans more efficiently. You do not need to live in Surfside Beach to volunteer to do this!
