Coastal Cleanup Day is an international event with more than 60 countries around the world participating, making it one of the largest volunteer efforts on the planet.
Last year, over 67,000 volunteers from California removed 676,768 pounds of trash and 115,773 pounds of recyclable waste.
On Saturday, thousands of Californians will again head down to their local beaches and inland waterways for the 28th Coastal Cleanup Day, on a mission to clear the sand and water of harmful and unsightly pollution.
There are three cleanups scheduled for Redondo Beach—one on the sand, one at the harbor and one in the water.
Dive N Surf is sponsoring an underwater cleanup by the Redondo Beach Pier. To participate, divers must be certified and register online. There is limited free parking available next to Veteran's Park for those who print out the attached parking pass.
According to Heal the Bay, there will also be a sand cleanup at Veteran's Park.
The King Harbor cleanup will be at the Port Royal Marina. The tent will be set up in front of the Port Royal Yacht Club, a light blue building. An entrance code will be posted at the gate so people can get into the parking lot. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
