Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is the largest environmental volunteer event in San Diego County each year. The mission of Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is to engage volunteers of all ages to remove trash and debris from beaches and waterways; to identify the sources of debris; and ultimately change the behaviors that cause pollution.
On Saturday September 15, 2012 from 9am-12noon, I Love A Clean San Diego will engage roughly 8,000 volunteers at more than 80 cleanup sites. These participants are expected to remove 100 tons of debris from local beaches, bays, creeks, canyons and urban areas.
There are more than 80 coastal and inland cleanup sites throughout San Diego County. Visit our website, www.cleanupday.org for a full list of cleanup sites. Join staff & sponsors at the kick off site at Serra Mesa Community Park (9020 Village Glen Drive, San Diego 92123).
There is more to protecting the coast than just beach cleanups, that’s why 60% of the Coastal Cleanup Day sites are at inland locations. We can prevent trash from ever reaching the coast, stopping it at the source!
B.Y.O.! Reduce your use, bring reusables. To continue our focus on reducing waste we ask volunteers to bring their own reusable cleanup supplies, such as reusable water bottles, gardening gloves, and buckets to collect trash.
