During Cleanup

Follow the instruction of your assigned coordinator:
·        Volunteers will be split up in 3 categories, each shall collect garbage under the assigned category
.        Shake off the sand from the garbage which will make the post-cleanup recycle process much easier

·        Once your bag is full of garbage kindly empty it in large collection bags aligned in the center of zone
·        Coordinators will assist you with emptying into the right collection bag according to segregation category
·        If you run out of garbage for your segregation category you can pick up a different category
·        Repeat the process until all garbage is removed or instructed by your coordinator

·        Don't get into arguments

·        Hand over your gloves and bags to your coordinator (will be reused during future cleanups)
·        Help with moving the large collection bags from the center of the zone to the access road 
·        These will be loaded onto appropriate transport and taken to the recycle vendor for second and third level segregation before recycling
·        Refreshments are provided by your company or coordinator (NGOs, schools, individuals)
·        You will receive a Chennai Coastal Cleanup/5 cloth bag from your coordinator which can be used for future shopping (say no to plastic covers)
