ABOUT CALIFORNIA COASTAL CLEANUP DAY & 2013 RESULTS 

California Coastal Cleanup Day is one of the nation’s premier volunteer events dedicated to the marine environment. For more information, visit the official website for California Coastal Cleanup Day.

Last year over 50% of the debris collected was diverted from the landfill. Recology, our event partner, further supports our conservation goals by making sure that everything you collect is separated and as much as possible is diverted from the landfill. Not only are the standard materials recycled—i.e. cans, bottles, hard plastic, etc.—but also scrap wood, metal, sheet rock, cement, sand and brick. Thank You Recology!
