Heal the Bay organizes the 32nd annual Coastal Clean Up Day throughout the South Bay and Los Angeles County in partnership with the California Coastal Commission this Saturday September 17. It’s part of a global effort where tens of thousands of pick-up artists link up for one morning to remove harmful and unsightly trash and debris from over 50 coastal sites.
Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “largest garbage collection” ever organized, the annual Coastal Cleanup Day provides Southern California & South Bay residents with the chance to beautify their neighborhood, local waters, or beach.
At last year’s event, nearly 10,000 volunteers collected 22,500 pounds of debris in Los Angeles County. To find out how to get involved this Saturday visit healthebay.org/ccd
