Join us Wednesday, Jan 9th  for an evening of discussion on recent SAY NO Porta Potty at Sawyers Beach, Offshore Drilling, Parking Access, Straw Bans, and more. Please come along, it’d be great to hear from you! When you arrive, ask for Surfrider and we’ll have some tables grouped together.

Say NO to a Porta-Potty at Sawyers Beach!

For all those in Rye, we encourage you to oppose the request for placement of a porta-potty at Sawyers Beach.


Please call the Selectmen’s Office at (603) 964-5523 x 110 to voice your concern, and clearly state that you OPPOSE a Porta-Potty at Sawyers Beach.


You can email/write a letter to your Selectman. Here is some sample language:

Dear Board of Selectmen,

I am writing as a resident of the Town of Rye, NH.  I am in opposition to a resident request for a porta-potty to be placed at Sawyers Beach. There are other permanent bathrooms in the vicinity, it would be an environmental risk and hazard, and an eyesore along this beautiful stretch of coast.

We would like the Board of Selectmen to deny this request.
