At the 2011 California Coastal Cleanup Day event in San Diego County, 7,600 volunteers came out to help clean up local coastal and inland communities. These dedicated volunteers removed 146,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from 201 miles of shoreline. Plus, over 2,000 of our friends across the border collected 42,000 pounds in Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito and Ensenada. Together we were nearly 10,000 volunteers in this interconnected region!
California Coastal Cleanup Day is organized locally by San Diego Coastkeeper and I Love A Clean San Diego and statewide by the California Coastal Commission and it takes place throughout California in 48 counties. California Coastal Cleanup Day is also a part of International Coastal Cleanup, which engages volunteers from over 100 countries.
