The 9th Annual ‘Cache In Trash Out’, CITO, takes place across the Geocaching world this weekend and. I have organized an event here in North Devon to tidy one small beach as our little contribution to the massive problem of litter that washes up on our shores.
Working in the environmental industry I can provide paper pickers and bin bags and I have access to disposing safely the mainly plastic bottles and containers that we are likely to collect. Find the green Geovan, TB33ZA7, where you'll find us with the event logbook and all the equipment. All we ask you to bring are strong footwear (for walking on loose rocks), gloves and enthusiasm.
Welcombe Mouth is a quiet and isolated location with the minimum of facilities. There is a car park at the co-ordinates given and access to it is via a dirt track. I will be bringing hot and cold water for drinks and some snacks to keep us all going. However, there is a pub at Welcombe itself (waymaked) were you are welcome to join us after the event for drinks and food.
The tide will be low during the event.
We found the beach to be in a rather clean state, but we managed to collect 10 bags of litter and one car bumper, but sadly no shopping trolleys!
