Keep It Beachy Clean Virginia Beach

We love Virginia Beach! Our beaches and ocean environment are an important part of our lifestyle, economy and culture. Keeping it all Beachy Clean will ensure a bright and sustainable future for our wonderful City.

  • There are recycle bins available on the resort beach, north end beach and Sandbridge beach.
  • Use reusable shopping bags and drink bottles.
  • Skip the Straw when you go out to eat.
  • Pick up after your pet: “Scoop the Poop.”
  • Pump out holding tanks on boats at proper pump out stations.
  • Reduce water usage with optional linen service.
  • Properly dispose of all litter.
