Beach Cleanup Volunteers Need
The City of Carlsbad is seeking volunteers for the 33rd annual California Coastal Cleanup Day, Saturday, Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to noon at the north end of the city’s beach, at Rue des Chateaux and Ocean Street. Reduce waste at this year's cleanup by bringing along your own bucket, work gloves and reusable water bottle.

Cleanup volunteers not only pick up trash, they also collect data on types of trash and debris found. This data is used to educate the public, businesses, industries and government on pollution prevention. Last year, over 100 volunteers removed over 300 pounds of trash and debris from Tamarack State Beach.

Volunteers are encouraged to sign up at Click on the map to select the city-sponsored coastal site at Carlsbad – North City Beach or any of the other registered sites. A volunteer waiver form is available on the website or at the event. All volunteers are required to sign the waiver, and participants under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

Sponsored by I Love A Clean San Diego and part of the larger International Coastal Cleanup Day, the California Coastal Cleanup Day includes events at more than 100 locations throughout San Diego County, including several sites in Carlsbad.
