Long Beach Hosts Multiple Beach Clean-ups For National Holiday

The City of Long Beach is hosting multiple beach clean-up events for the community to join this Saturday for National Beach Clean-up Day.

The LB Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine is hosting these events at 

  • Junipero Beach on 2100 E. Ocean Blvd., 
  • Mother’s Beach on 5839 Appian Way, 
  • Seal Beach Yacht Club on 255 N. Marina Dr., 
  • Peninsula on 72nd Pl. and Ocean Blvd. 
  • 54th and Claremont on 5400 E. Ocean Blvd. 

This year is the 38th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day and the city is hoping to get as many members of the community to assist as possible. Parking is free for this event and participants can join anytime between 9 a.m. to noon.

Keep Nature Wild is a company that is hosting more than 50 clean-up events across the United States this year.  They will be having their event at Rosie’s Dog Beach on 5000 E. Ocean Blvd from 10 a.m. to noon. Keep Nature Wild was organized in 2016 and promises to pick up one pound of trash for every apparel product sold.

All events will provide gloves and trash bags to participants but the city is encouraging people to bring their own reusable buckets and reusable gloves. According to both organizations, contributors are also encouraged to wear hats and gear that they don’t mind getting dirty as they will be there to help pick up as much litter as possible. Anyone who is interested in any of the events can visit here, here or call (562)-570-1745 for more information.,
