The 31st Annual Coastal Cleanup Day
I Love a Clean San Diego (ILACSD) will hold their 31st Annual Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, Sept. 19 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at over 100 local cleanup locations around San Diego County. Best known for its beach cleanup sites in areas along the coast such as Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, and all the way up to Oceanside, the event also extends into inland communities such as Vista. Each year the event attracts approximately 7,500 volunteers of all ages from community organizations, local businesses, and government agencies. In 2014 alone, volunteers removed 204,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from San Diego’s 11 watersheds that otherwise would have polluted San Diego’s waterways and beloved coastline. ILACSD is currently seeking community members and corporate volunteer teams to coordinate cleanup sites, and volunteers of all ages are encouraged to sign up to participate.
