Want to lead a cleanup site? Become a Site Captain!

ILACSD is currently recruiting site captains throughout San Diego county to lead cleanup sites on September 15th! There are options to support at a site in need designated by our team as a flexible site captain or at a location in your community! Sign up to help by Wednesday July 11th.

Duties include: leading their site on September 15th, keep in contact with our team leading up to the event, and coordinate their cleanup site meeting location. On the day of the event, site captains collect waivers from volunteers, pass out supplies, give an informational/safety talk, and then keep record of the trash & debris totals to report back to ILACSD by deadlines given.

To get involved, reach out directly to Lauren Short at or at 619-704-2772
