In 2017 over 63,200 volunteers removed over 709,000 pounds of trash and recyclables, cleaning up over 1,800 miles of coastline. You can be part of this effort by joining others at one of over 1,000 coastal or inland area clean-up sites.
This effort was first started in Oregon in 1984 and was hugely successful. The following year California joined the effort with close to 2,500 volunteers. In 1993, California Coastal Cleanup Day was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “largest garbage collection” ever organized, with 50,405 volunteers. The program has grown over the years to include many nations around the globe.
You and your friends are invited to take part in this effort on Saturday September 15th from 9:00 am to noon.
