Private Beach Cleanups

Surfrider Foundation’s Chapter network conducts 1000 public beach cleanups annually throughout the West, East, Gulf, Hawaiian, Great Lakes, and Puerto Rican Coasts. Cleanups are led by volunteers who weigh, catalog, and recycle the appropriate materials collected. Surfrider volunteers collect and remove 100,000 pounds of trash and recycled materials annually.
The San Diego County Chapter held over 100 cleanups in 2019, empowering 11,895 volunteers to remove 16,534 pounds of trash from our beaches. Maintaining such a robust program requires the support of numerous individuals, organizations, and businesses within San Diego County. We invite your company to join the effort to keep San Diego County’s coastline clean by sponsoring a public or private beach cleanup.
Our orientation includes introducing the Surfrider Foundation, the importance of coastal preservation efforts, and simple measures we can all take to protect our ocean, waves, and beaches.

Support clean water and healthy beaches.
