Morning After Mess Cleanup Day presented by Sun Diego Boardshops

The Fourth of July is not only San Diego's busiest beach day of the year with hundreds of thousands flocking to the shoreline to enjoy a day of sand, sun, and fun. Unfortunately, anyone who’s seen the aftermath also knows that the holiday produces the most trash and litter of any other beach day. Last year, more than 1,000 volunteers collected over 8,000 pounds of trash.

That’s why the San Diego County Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, in cooperation with Sun Diego Boardshops, invite the public to join them in this year’s "Morning After Mess" beach clean up event, Saturday, July 5 from 8am to 11am. The Morning After Mess cleanup will organize volunteers to assist workers picking up the massive amounts of trash left at six San Diego County beaches from Oceanside to Ocean Beach over the Fourth of July holiday.

The six sites are Ocean Beach Pier, Belmont Park in Mission Beach, PB Drive in Pacific Beach, 15th St/Powerhouse Park in Del Mar, Ponto Beach in South Carlsbad, and the Oceanside Pier.

Pre-registration is requested, especially if you have a group of people, but not required. To pre-register, please email Sarah with the site you plan on attending and the total # of people. No minimum age, children are welcome.

Click Here for a liability waiver that everyone needs to sign. If possible, please print it out and have it signed in advance to make the check in process easier.

If you need more information, please contact: Bill Hickman our Chapter Coordinator at (858) 792-9940, or email him.

Many thanks to Sun Diego Boardshops for sponsoring the event and to San Diego Coastkeeper, I Love A Clean San Diego, Keep Del Mar Clean and to the San Diego Clean Beach Coalition for helping to run the event.
