Volunteers needed for the 31st Annual Coastal Cleanup Day!

Sign up today to volunteer at I Love A Clean San Diego's biggest event of the year, Coastal Cleanup Day, scheduled for Saturday, Sept 19th from 9AM - 12noon at 100 countywide locations! Click "Register" above to see this year's participating cleanup sites and sign up to volunteer at a site near you. 

We're still in need of site captains to help us lead this year's event. We're especially looking for volunteers to serve as captains in the following communities: El Cajon, Mira Mesa, Carmel Valley, Rancho Bernardo, Spring Valley, and Rancho San Diego. Contact Lexi Ambrogi if interested.   

Last year, over 7,600 volunteers participated in San Diego County, removing a record-breaking 104 tons of debris from local rivers, creeks, canyons, neighborhoods, beaches, and bays.  See the totals with some event photos here.   These volunteers also collected valuable data about the type and source of debris found at these 106 locations.  View the results of our findings and some trends about litter in San Diego County here.

Volunteer with ILACSD all year!
