Practicing Coastal Cleanup at Home

The California Coast  California Coastal Cleanup 2020 (Statewide) talks about how to practice this year’s coastal cleanup during pandemic in your own neighborhood.

Clean your neighborhoods, local parks, streets, and storm drains for this year’s Coastal Cleanup. Trash travels through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become beach and ocean pollution. Help clean the beach by picking up litter in your community with your household.
Cleanups are happening every Saturday in September. If Saturdays don’t work for you, don’t let that stop you! You can clean up any day, any time. If you report your cleanup to your local coordinator and/or record it on the CleanSwell app, all cleanups in September will be included as part of Coastal Cleanup Month.
For safety reasons, there are no large, centrally organized cleanup sites this year. Instead, cleanups will be self-guided and close to home. Practice physical distancing, and strictly follow both local ordinances and this safety document. To learn more about cleanup efforts near you, contact your local county coordinator.
Remember, beach cleanups start at your door. Thank you for staying safe, cleaning your neighborhoods, and protecting the coast!
