Coastal Cleanup Day 2011 Recap
The City of Alameda Public Works Department would like to thank the volunteers and cooperating agencies who participated in the 27th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 17th.
To add to the statewide efforts, Alameda had a grand total of 592 volunteers on the beach that morning, cleaning up litter and debris from our coastline that would have otherwise ended up in the San Francisco Bay.
We collected nearly a ton of material from Crown Beach in just a few hours. That's a ton of debris and harmful plastics that will not reach our waterways and become part of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Pat yourselves on the back for a job well done!
Looking forward to seeing you again in September 2012 for the 28th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day!
