SLO County Coastal Cleanup Day

The 34th annual Coastal Cleanup Day event invites volunteers from the community to clean up trash and track data. Every year since 2005, ECOSLO coordinates beach cleanups from San Simeon to Nipomo as part of this international coastal cleanup. Even though Central Coast beaches are cleaner than some, last year they removed nearly 6,500 pounds of trash and recyclables from beaches, waterways and lakes.

In California, Coastal Cleanup Day holds the distinction of drawing the most participation of any volunteer event over its thirty year history. As County Coordinator, ECOSLO works with the California Coastal Commission to bring out the community in the campaign for healthy coasts, shorelines, and oceans. Last year, 1,300 volunteers removed trash and recyclables from 30 cleanup locations throughout San Luis Obispo County.
