Beach Clean Ups

The Long Beach Water Department organizes an annual beach cleanup in conjunction with the California Coastal Commission's "California Coastal Cleanup Day."  This effort helps make a more 'Beautiful Long Beach' and promotes environmental stewardship and education.

Also, any person in need of completing community service is invited to help out and receive service credit.
