Coastal Cleanup Day 2017

What is Coastal Cleanup Day?
Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual international and national volunteer event that:
  • Helps clean the marine environment, such as the ocean, bays and other water bodies.
  • Focuses in the shores of lakes, streams, rivers and the ocean.
  • Involves over 9 million volunteers worldwide.
  • Removes over 140 million pounds of trash and debris globally.
  • Originates from the first event over 25 years ago by the Ocean Conservancy.
California's Involvement
The California Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual beach and inland waterway cleanup in California and is the state's largest volunteer event. This California event received over 80,000 volunteers removing more than 1,200,000 pounds of trash, litter, recyclables and debris from beaches, lakes, creeks and other waterways.

Fremont's Involvement
The City of Fremont has been participating in Coastal Cleanup Day for over 20 years. Even though Fremont does not have any coasts, the litter, trash and debris that gets into storm drains and local creeks has an effect on the San Francisco Bay. Litter, trash and debris affect California coasts, the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
