The Morning After Mess

The Fourth of July is about celebration. It's about honoring our country, our freedoms, while tossing a few back with family and friends — not on the beach of course — and watching the spectacular displays of fireworks. Apparently, it's also about tossing some garbage onto San Diego's beaches as well!

According to San Diego Clean Beach Coalition's website, over 400,000 pounds of garbage was collected by volunteers and city employees after last Fourth of July's festivities. And despite this years "ban on booze" and previous year's ban on smoking at the beach, the coalition expects some dirty San Diego beaches.

Earlier this year, the Surfrider Foundation, alongside I Love A Clean San Diego, San Diego Coastkeeper, and San Diego's lifeguards, police, and park rangers got together to organize the San Diego Clean Beach Coalition. The coalition has already been responsible for placing over 150 extra trash receptacles at beaches throughout the county in anticipation of the mess.

In addition, the Surfrider Foundation, alongside Sun Diego Boardshops and a handful of other sponsors, are coordinating a massive "morning after mess," beach cleanup at six of San Diego's most popular beaches, from Oceanside to Ocean Beach.

Volunteers are asked to show up between 8am to 11am at any of these six beaches: the 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.
