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.
