As waste continually pollutes our streets, waterways, and beaches, Cleanup OC provides the opportunity for you to help protect and restore the environments well call home.

Through Cleanup OC, Coastkeeper holds monthly beach cleanups and coordinates the annual OC Coastal Cleanup Day. Cleanup OC’s ultimate goal is to unite Orange County communities through service, responsibility, and sharing of the natural environment. Check out all Coastkeeper’s cleanup opportunities to get involved.
