California Coastal Cleanup Day is the premier volunteer event focused on the marine environment in the country. Each year, thousands of volunteers work
together to collect close to a million pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, lakes, and waterways. California
Coastal Cleanup Day has been hailed by the Guinness Book of World Records as "the largest garbage collection" (1993). Since
the program started in 1985, over 800,000 Californians have removed more than 12 million pounds of debris from our state's
shorelines and coast. When combined with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by The Ocean Conservancy and taking
place on the same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes part of one of the largest volunteer events of the year.
