Chennai Coastal Cleanup/5, June 8th – Group Registration
The Chennai Trekking ClubOur ambitious target for June 8th is to collect 50+ tons of garbage from
20+km of Chennai beaches with 5000+ volunteers both individual volunteers, corporates, schools
and NGOs all joining hands together to send a strong message of environmental awareness and
conservation within our society.
Coordination of this massive cleanup operation will be done by a 100+ member organizing team
of the Chennai Trekking Club who will coordinate with both groups and individual volunteers at the
15+ target beach zones.
Groups (Corporates, schools, NGOs) will report to their designated beach zones on Sunday morning
through their own transport and join the cleanup effort along with individual volunteers. The cleanup will
happen between 6-8:30am. Corporates have to procure bio-degradable garbage bags, gloves and
refreshments beforehand for their employees. Contact details of bags/gloves vendors will be shared.
Estimated cost per head is around 60Rs. Schools, NGOs and individuals can participate free of cost
(bags, gloves, refreshments will be sponsored).

Garbage will be segregated in various categories (plastics, glass, bio-degradable…) and recycled to the
maximum extent possible to minimize the percentage of leftover sent to the garbage dump. CTC will
coordinate with third-party recycling companies and the Chennai Corporation for safe disposal of the
remaining garbage. Volunteers and groups participating in the cleanup will be educated by CTC’s
Green team on segregation of materials.
The entire event will be extensively covered by our event partner The Hindu as well as a broad awareness
campaign on the social media supported by a large team of photographers of the Chennai Trekking Club
to carry our message of conservation to a wide audience. Last year 5500 people participated in the 4th
year edition of our Coastal Cleanup including 3000 individual volunteers and 100+ corporates, schools
and NGOs cleaning up 40 tons of garbage from our coastline.
Theme of this year’s cleanup is both conservation and recycling. On June 7th evening there will be an
exhibit at Eliot beach in which various vendors active in recycling, segregation, green & bio-degradable
products will display their range of products and create awareness among the public.
We welcome sponsors who wish to be associated with this major event & conservation cause and
enable us to keep the event free for participating individual volunteers, schools and NGOs.
Volunteers and groups will be allocated uniformly according to garbage density across various designated
