WHAT WE DO
We do beach cleanups, invasive plant removals and marine debris removals here. Priority is given to the beach cleanups. This site in particular is impacted by pallet bonfires that leave nails and often broken glass in the sand. Bad news! While we clean up bonfires, we also respectfully educate anyone we see with pallets or other bonfire materials.
Depending on how much time is left after the beach cleanup, we will turn our attention to either/both invasive plant removals of the koa haole or marine debris removal of fishing line.
If water conditions are calm enough, we’ll do marine debris removal (fishing line/lead/plastics) from various coves at Kaʻiwi. Strong swimming skills a must for this site!
If you arrive after 4 PM you can find us out along the shoreline. Keep an eye out for orange 808 shirts and orange buckets!
WHAT TO BRING
Please bring your own mask and fins if you plan to participate in the marine debris segment. Strong swimming skills a must for this site! For the beach cleanup, if can, please bring gloves, bucket, magnet, or sifter. If not, no worries! 808 Cleanups will provide supplies for you.
WHERE TO MEET
Meet in the Kaʻiwi parking lot by 4 PM (past Sandy Beach, before Makapu’u Lighthouse). If you come after 4 PM that’s okay, start your walk out along the beach and look for us in orange 808 shirts and for orange buckets.
