Coastal Cleanup Day

California Coastal Cleanup Day is part of the International Coastal Cleanup – the largest volunteer event in the world. In 2016, nearly 800,000 volunteers collected over 18 million pounds of debris from beaches, lakes and waterways across the globe.

In partnership with the California Coastal Commission and Heal the Bay, LA Waterkeeper hosts a cleanup site each year at Dockweiler Beach.

Come take part in the world’s largest volunteer day by joining us for Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 16, 2017!

2016:

On September 17th, Waterkeeper 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.
