Make Trash Extinct! Volunteers Needed in Half Moon Bay for Coastal Cleanup Day

California's largest volunteer event is this Saturday and your help is needed on the Coast.

Make Trash Extinct! Volunteers Needed in Half Moon Bay for Coastal Cleanup Day
if you want to help protect the dolphins that swim off the beaches in Half Moon Bay from cigarette butts and other harmful trash, consider volunteering this Saturday at the 29th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day to pick up litter.

The San Mateo Countywide Pollution Prevention Program invites community members to volunteer in the annual  Coastal Cleanup Day this Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at one of many sites in Half Moon Bay. Work with your neighbors to clean up trash at beaches, creeks, parking lots and neighborhood streets with the goal to prevent the refuse from winding up in our bays and the ocean, landing on California’s coastline.

Here’s a look at some of the clean up day locations in and around Half Moon Bay. For more Bay Area and coastal sites, click here.

All volunteers under the age of 18 must have the waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian before participating in a cleanup. Waiver forms available in  English and in  Spanish.
