Self-Guided Cleanup, Any Day
Participate throughout the month by cleaning your neighborhoods, parks, and other local areas. Trash from inland areas flows downstream to the coast, so cleaning up neighborhood trash prevents marine debris.
Gather cleanup supplies from home, download the CleanSwell app (to count your trash, and to have your trash counted!) and clean on your own time throughout September.
In 2019, more than 74,000 volunteers picked up more than 900,000 pounds of trash from beaches and waterways throughout California.
How to Remove Gloves Safely
Take one glove off and crumple it into a ball.
Remove the other glove by pinching the inside edge of the glove with your ungloved hand.
Slowly pull off the glove, flipping it inside out and making sure not to touch the outside.
Safely dispose of it in the trash and wash hands thoroughly.
