Thousands to Pick Up Trash in Orange County During World’s Largest Cleanup Event

  • Orange County Coastkeeper will host several sites across the county

  • Last year, over 7,000 volunteers collected more than 53,000 pounds of trash

  • Local effort also a part of 35th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day

WHAT: Armed with reusable bags and buckets, thousands will defend Orange County’s bays, inland waters and beaches from coastal pollution on Coastal Cleanup Day – the world's largest trash cleanup.

WHY: Trash from inland communities travels through storm drains and rivers, polluting the region’s waterways and beaches. Trash cleanups stand as a last line of defense to prevent this debris from polluting local waters and harming wildlife.

Last year, more 7,000 Orange County volunteers collected more 53,000 pounds of trash and recyclable materials during this three-hour event across Orange County. This year, Coastkeeper expects to remove even more trash from local waterways, to preserve and protect our coast.


  • Thousands of southern California residents removing trash from various parks, beaches, trails and other locations throughout Orange County
