Note: we don’t have a truck to collect the plastic bags full of plastic. Each of us will have to take the plastic bags back. we won’t take organic waste back with us. so it should not smell.
Still, if you are not comfortable with this, that’s ok, it is best that you do not join: we can’t collect junk and leave it there as you would be wasting your time and some garbage bags.
You should bring a small backpack and carry with you 1.5L of water. It’s probably a good idea to also have 1L waiting for you at the car when you’re done. You may want to consider snacks.
Waterproof hiking boots could be a good idea. but whatever you wear will get wet. so bring a change of socks/shoes + a towel.
Consider bringing sunglasses/sunscreen/hat/buff
