Waiver, Data Card & Posters


Walk down any beach and you will find marine debris, defined as “any manufactured or processed solid waste material that enters the marine environment from any source.”  Marine debris impacts human health and safety, endangers wildlife and aquatic habitats, and costs local and national economies millions in wasted resources and lost revenues.

Most of the debris (80%) is due to land-based sources, like litter (from pedestrians, motorists, beach visitors), industrial discharges (in the form of plastic pellets and powders), and garbage management (ill-fitting trash can lids, etc).  Some marine debris comes from ocean going ships and boats.

Beaches in California attract millions of visits each year, most during the summer.  Thus, we focus our efforts on cleanup at the end of each summer.



The annual Coastal Cleanup Day event engages volunteers from our community to clean up trash and debris.  Every year since 1986, we coordinate beach cleanups from San Simeon Point to Oso Flaco Lake. Even though Central Coast beaches are cleaner than some, last year 1,300 volunteers removed 5,800 pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches and creeks.

In California, Coastal Cleanup Day holds the distinction of drawing the most participation of any volunteer event over its thirty-three year history.  As County Coordinator, ECOSLO works with the California Coastal Commission to bring out our community in the campaign for healthy coasts, shorelines, and oceans. 


Please download, fill out and bring with you to Creeks to Coast Cleanup.  We will have some on-hand but it’s helpful (and saves time!) if you can fill out a waiver beforehand and bring it with you.

Data Cards will be provided to volunteers, but to ensure we have enough supplies we invite you to print your own!  Volunteers are asked to tally data so we can submit this to an international debris report put together by Ocean Conservancy each year.  This also helps us look at top items for SLO County and notice any trends or changes for our area.  Download the Data Card
