Clean Beach Coalition to Kickoff 4th of July Weekend with
Annual Press Event and Bin Unveiling
What: The media is invited to hear from Councilmember Lorie Zapf, coastal business owners, public safety personnel and I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) at this year’s San Diego Clean Beach Coalition (SDCBC) press event and bin unveiling. The SDCBC, led by ILACSD, will once again deter littering and encourage beachgoers to be stewards of their environment through public education and the placement of 75 temporary trash and recycling bins along Mission Beach, Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, and Ocean Beach.
When: Today, Thursday, July 2nd from 11 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Where: Fanuel Street Park in Mission Bay
4024 Fanuel Street, San Diego, CA 92109
Directions: Take I-5, exit Grand/Garnet, go West on Grand Avenue toward the beach. Make a left onto Fanuel Street, and follow road South toward Mission Bay. Fanuel Street Park is on right-hand side, one block from Mission Bay.
Why: Trashed beaches and bays are unsightly and cause serious health issues for marine life and beachgoers. The current bins alone cannot meet the demands of the increased foot-traffic and the trash that accumulates. SDCBC bins were placed over Memorial Day Weekend this year and collected over 116,000 pounds of trash and recycling. SDCBC’s bins make it easy and convenient for beachgoers to enjoy their time seaside while keeping it clean.
Who: The SDCBC is a joint partnership between ILACSD, FreePB.org, and City of San Diego, who work collaboratively to address pollution along San Diego’s treasured coastline. This year’s top tier sponsors include: City of San Diego Think Blue and Pacific Beach Shore Club. ILACSD staff, sponsors, Councilmember Lorie Zapf and public safety personnel will be available for interviews.
