Each year, on the third Saturday in September, people join together at sites all over California to take part in the State's largest volunteer event, California Coastal Cleanup Day. In 2016, more than 66,000 volunteers removed nearly 1,143,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California's beaches, lakes and waterways. Families, friends, coworkers, scout troops, school groups, service clubs and individuals come together to celebrate and share their appreciation of California's fabulous coast and waterways.
