Coastal and Inner-Coastal Clean-up Day

Trash is polluting our creeks, rivers, bays and ocean. Join your friends and neighbors in helping to keep our waterways healthy.

Over 35 cleanup sites countywide:

Coastal and Inner Coastal Cleanup Day (September 21, 2019) is a chance for us to visit our local waterways and pick up trash that is polluting our creeks, rivers, bays and ocean. Many agencies join together to host sites throughout the county: both at our beaches and at our inland waterways. With over 35 cleanup sites, there is sure to be one near you.

For a complete list of 2019 cleanup sites, please visit

Inner coastal cleanup sites (sites that are inland) are an especially great place to volunteer because they allow us to pick up trash in our neighborhood creeks and rivers before the trash reaches the ocean.

The County of Orange 2019 hosted site:

The County partners with Surfrider to host a site at the Santa Ana River in Huntington Beach.
