Sponsors are needed for the 2015 Clean Beach Coalition program, a successful summertime program educating beachgoers and preventing litter by the ton from local beaches in San Diego. In 2014, 200 temporary trash and recycling bins were placed at Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Mission Bay, and Ocean Beach over the Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day holiday weekends, where they were heavily used by beachgoers to protect our coastline. Beachgoers properly disposed of and recycled 145,000 pounds of would-be litter in these bins. Thank you to all 2014 program supporters, including City of San Diego Think Blue, PB Shoreclub, Typhoon Saloon, The Heller Foundation, SeaWorld San Diego, Sandbar, Tavern at the Beach, Rubio’s, Anheuser Busch, VAVi, Mission Beach Women’s Club, and Bar West, as well as all those responsible beach visitors who help us to prevent litter!

Not only did these bins prevent litter, but they also offered a recycling option for beach visitors. If you are not sure what to put into the recycling bin, the following items are recyclable in San Diego County: aluminum cans and aluminum foil, clean dry paper and cardboard, glass of any color and size, and hard plastics such as a two liter soda bottle, personal water bottle, or plastic party cups. Some common items mistaken for recycling that should actually go into the trash include styrofoam, paper cups, and plastic bags or wrappers.

Review the program partnership packet for more information, including levels of giving and associated benefits.
