Beach Maintenance & Cleaning

An end-to-end solution to ensure leisure seekers enjoy the experience that they deserve.

Frequency of maintenance depends on sand quality, tidal environment, amount of debris and area to be covered. Ecocoast generally recommends multiple passes with different screen sizes to ensure maximum benefit. Wet beach cleaning can be provided as well up to water depths of 1.5m.

A wide range of beach cleaning equipment is available for hire on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Ecocoast is flexible when it comes to scheduling, covering both standard operating hours and after-hours to fit a client’s specific situation.

How does our equipment work? The beach cleaners work by aerating the sand, screening out debris under the surface, and removing debris on top of the surface. The sand is immediately returned to the beach, while the larger debris is removed.

Since 2014, Ecocoast has cleaned over 2,800,000 square meters of area and removed over 2,240 cubic meters of debris from beaches and golf courses. This equates to over 5,180 tonnes or 50 trailer loads.
