Every year, on the third Saturday in September, people join together at sites all over California to take part in the State's largest volunteer event, California Coastal Cleanup Day. In 2015, over 68,000 volunteers removed almost 1,143,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California's beaches, lakes, and waterways. Families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, service clubs, and individuals come together to celebrate and share their appreciation of California's fabulous coast and waterways. In cooperation with the California Coastal Commission, the City is committed to reducing the environmental footprint of Coastal Cleanup Day. Please join the effort this year by turning out to the cleanup with a "Bring Your Own" philosophy. Volunteers can bring a bucket to the cleanup for collecting trash. It is recommended that volunteers bring gloves, sturdy shoes, hats, sunscreen and water.
