Clevedon Pier will hold a beach clean next week and is hoping people will join in.
The grade I-listed attraction will welcome volunteers at 2pm on May 9 to clear up the area as part of the national Beachwatch scheme.
The environmental group will meet at the toll house in The Beach before clearing litter from the seafront down as far as The Salthouse pub.
A Beachwatch spokesman said: “During 2018 we are taking part in the UK’s biggest beach clean-up and survey.
“Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangles in litter.
You may also want to watch:
“It is also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industries.
“We all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter.”
