USE TRASH FOR CASH
and trade your litter for something better
Participants go scavenging for litter on surrounding beaches and in parklands. Every piece of litter is of equal value at Seaside Scavenge since none of it belongs there in the first place!
Litter is then sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable. Every 10 pieces of litter earns the Scavenger a token. This token is the currency accepted in our second-hand seaside markets.
The markets are filled with everything from clothing to toys to books to homewares. It all depends on the generosity of locals who donate their pre-loved 'stuff' in the lead-up to the event. Then we price each donated item at either 1, 2 or 3 tokens.
