Coastal and Bay Cleanup Day

Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) is an annual waterway and land cleanup held on the third Saturday of every September. It’s California’s largest volunteer event and brings community awareness to cleaning up and protecting our marine environment.

San Mateo County coordinates CCD in conjunction with the California Coastal Commission, the Ocean Conservancy, and many Statewide and local partners (see below).

Cleanups are held at over 30 beaches, creeks, waterways, parks and neighborhoods throughout the County.
