2015 Orange County Results
The 2015 Coastal Cleanup Day took place on Saturday, Sept. 19. Californians turned out by the tens of thousands to lend their hands in support of clean beaches and inland waterways at the 31th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day. They scoured beaches and inland waterways, picking up trash and debris gathering hundreds of pound of trash during this three-hour event. Beach, inland waterway, and community cleanups took place up and down the California coast, from Mexico to the Oregon border, around San Francisco Bay, and at sites as far inland as Lake Tahoe.
