The November Beach Cleanup Numbers




It's that time of year here in Mission Beach when everything slows down. The days are shorter, the weather much cooler, and crowds thin way out. Not so many vacationers and San Diego County residents come to the beach. Unfortunately, way too much trash does.


The trash numbers for November 2023 are higher than this time last year, with approximately 11,668 pieces of trash picked up on one mile of beach (from the Jetty north) by one person in a month is just sad. This does not include what is picked up by other locals and beach cleanup organizations that come down to help our community with a terrible problem. Our sincere gratitude to all of those who volunteer their time.


If you care, would you please join us and become a court Stewart or volunteer to clean up just once a week? Don't let yourself become desensitized to the trash the careless leave behind. It makes a difference.


Take a look below at a list of items picked up off the beach in November.
