California Coastal Cleanup Day
Virtual Cleanup - San Diego County

We're going Virtual!

Cleaning the beach starts at your front door.

The 36th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day will be a virtual and remote event. Volunteer households will clean up close to home in their neighborhoods to stay safe and make a positive local impact. Visit the Volunteer page to learn how you can get involved!

Registration will be on I Love A Clean San Diego's new COMMUNITY HUB! Prepare by creating your account to stay in the loop:

Community Champions

What is a Community Champion?

With this new virtual format, we look to our leading community members to participate in new ways.

Some duties include: 

- Hosting a Supply Hub to provide cleanup supplies to volunteers that do not have their own

- Identify areas in need - streets and sidewalks in their communities that are heavily impacted by litter where we can direct interested volunteer households

- Participate in our LIVE kickoff and social media interviews throughout the day on September 26th

- Promote the event and recruit volunteers to clean up in their neighborhood - our Community Champions know their local leaders and networks best

If you are interested, please reach out to Carly Keen at or (619) 704-2774. The deadline to be a site captain is August 9, 2020!

Reduce waste at this year's cleanup by using your own bucket, work gloves, and reusable water bottle. Pro tip: look to salvage buckets from local sandwich shops or fast food chains!
