Totals from the various sites are still coming in, but I Love A Clean San Diego are happy to report they had an approximate 6,500 volunteers this past Saturday, cleaning up 107 locations and collecting around 140,000 lbs. of debris from throughout the region!
Some of the most unusual items found were: a zombie apocalypse kit, a library book from Kentucky, 64 pallets, Star Wars figurine, a stroller, and more!!
One of the cleanup locations was at Rose Creek in Pacific Beach.
The Friends of Rose Creek would like to send out a huge thank you to the 149 volunteers that attended Coastal Cleanup Day at Rose Creek. Volunteers fill up 1.5 40-yard roll offs full of trash and down trees with 1501 volunteers. Our total haul was over 3,000 pounds of trash.
A huge thank you to Campland-on-the-Bay for Ice Cream for the volunteers. It was much appreciated after a long hot morning of physical work. Thanks to Monica, Jordan, and Josh from Councilmember Campbell’s office for joining us as well as Sarah and Adrian from I Love A Clean San Diego. Students and faculty from the Sweetwater Union School District, University of California, and the Circle K Club from San Diego State University were out in force. Amazing work everyone! We truly appreciate your support.
