The “world’s largest garbage collection” returns from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 15.
The California Coastal and Creek Cleanup Day was first organized in 1985 by the California Coastal Commission. In 1993, the event was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records with 50,405 volunteers. The Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo (ECOSLO) has been organizing the cleanup day in this county since 2005.
In last year’s event, 1,567 volunteers collected 30,807 pounds of debris countywide from creeks and beaches.
This year’s event will include educating beachgoers about the Japanese tsunami cleanup.
