This summer as you head out to enjoy the sun, sand and surf take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the beach and be sure to recycle and throw away your trash. The free bins will be ensuring that you can enjoy a clean and safe beach weekend this summer!
Clean Beach Coalition will once again be placing temporary trash and recycling bins along the beach at Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Mission Bay, and Pacific Beach for the long holiday weekends during Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.


-80% of marine debris originates on land Instead of littering help to fight adding more trash to the 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic floating in our oceans.

-Around 8 million pieces of litter enter the marine environment every day

-Plastic bags take 10 – 20 years to decompose on the ocean floor.

-Cigarette butts continue to top lists as the #1 item found during beach cleanups attributing over 26% of litter.

What you can do?

Bring reusable items to your holiday beach day including reusable bags, reusable straws, coolers, reusable water bottles, reusable silverware, and reusable containers.

Avoid: plastic bags, disposable straws, disposable utensils, plastic water bottles and paper plates, Styrofoam/plastic cups and Styrofoam coolers.
