California Coastal Cleanup Day
San Diego County
Registration for 2020 not yet open

How to participate:

1. Register Online

Registration for the virtual cleanup will be available on I Love A Clean San Diego's new Community Hub. Check back for the opening date! To encourage physical distancing and keep you safe, you are asked to volunteer only with your household in your neighborhood.

2. Prepare your supplies

Gather cleanup supplies (put those used grocery bags under your sink and gardening or cleaning gloves to use!), and spread the word to other households. You'll receive an email with full requirements and details on how to prepare.

3. Go outside and clean up!

Head outside to pick up trash around your block in your neighborhood - don't forget to remain at a safe social distance from your neighbors and wear a face-covering or mask! Groups of people that do not live in the same house, even if socially distancing, should not be a part of this virtual event. Join us LIVE at 9AM for a cleanup kickoff with featured guests on Facebook @iloveacleansd. Take pride in cleaning your local neighborhood while staying connected to the larger impact of community members cleaning up all over San Diego County - virtually together, physically apart.

4. Separate your trash and recyclables

As you're cleaning up, be sure to separate out your trash and recyclables. By properly separating, we're enhancing our recycling knowledge and supporting the recycling system. When you finish up collecting, use your bins at home to dispose of trash. You'll be sent cleanup guidelines for how to separate properly once you register! 

5. Share your accomplishments

Tell us how you did! Report back your totals after you finish the cleanup through provided links to the Volunteer Impact Map. By sharing, we can see the impact we made working together throughout the county!
A complete list of cleanup locations and site details will be posted beginning in August when online registration will be open for volunteers. Check back for updates and to sign up for the site of your choice.
Reduce waste at this year's cleanup by using your own bucket, work gloves, and reusable water bottle. Pro tip: look to salvage buckets from local sandwich shops or fast food chains!
