Coastal Cleanup Day 2013 is this coming weekend on Saturday 9/21/2013.  Heal the Bay’s annual event is the “biggest volunteer day on the planet” and last year’s turnout was over 62,000.   They hauled away over 700,000 pounds of trash and 140,000 pounds of recycling items.

Local meeting sites range from Malibu to Long Beach.   Palos Verdes sites will be at Malaga Cove (Via Arroyo/Paseo Del Mar) and Abalone Cove.  The beach cities will have many locations including the Manhattan Beach Pier, Hermosa Pier, Redondo Pier (end of Torrance Blvd) and King Harbor at the Port Royal Yacht Club.

The cleanup even includes dive locations, drain ways and some parks.  Participation waivers, flyers and fundraising info is available on the Heal the Bay’s information pages.
