Coastal Cleanup Dayscheduled for mid-September

California Coastal Commission and Whole Foods Market sponsor the 23rd-annual Coastal Cleanup Day scheduled from 9 a.m.-noon Sept. 15.

The event will take place at 700 locations throughout the state. It involves volunteers cleaning trash and debris from 1,100 miles of the coastline and 1,000 miles along the inland shorelines of bays, creeks, rivers and lakes.

During last year's cleanup, 56,273 volunteers removed nearly 1 million pounds of debris from the state's shorelines in the "largest single event in the Cleanup's history," according to information from the coastal commission.
