Coastal Cleanup Day

California Coastal Cleanup Day is part of the International Coastal Cleanup – the largest volunteer event in the world. In partnership with statewide coordinator California Coastal Commission and regional coordinator Heal the Bay, LA Waterkeeper hosts a sand & sea cleanup site each year at Dockweiler Beach.

In 2017, JOE NATION and his crew joined us at Dockweiler! Check out his take on CCD here:

2016:

We hosted our annual beach and sea cleanup at Dockweiler Beach. Our divers alone collected nearly 60 lbs of plastic debris and trash from the ocean. Coastal Cleanup Day LA was a huge success – over 9,500 volunteers showed up to collect nearly 15 tons of trash!

2015:

Over 250 volunteers gathered near Tower 58 at Dockweiler Beach, and together hauled in more than 350 pounds of trash & recyclables.

2014:

Nearly 400 volunteers collected over 200 pounds of plastic, styrofoam, and cigarette butts that plagued El Segundo beach.

2013:

 Over 400 volunteers removed 250 pounds of trash in 2013. Our beach cleanup site uniquely featured a sea cleanup by volunteer scuba divers and a “Pellet Watch” where volunteers sifted through sand for micro-plastics.
