Each year our volunteers remove half a million pounds of debris from San Diego’s neighborhoods, creeks, canyons and coastline.
Many ILACSD volunteers pledge to bring reusable work gloves, water bottles, or buckets to our cleanups! Choosing reusable options helps reduce the amount of waste that we create, making our cleanups more sustainable.
WasteFreeSD.org, our zero waste database and call center, provides residents with helpful information to reduce, reuse, repair, recycle, and donate items that would otherwise end up in San Diego’s overcrowded landfills.
Each year, our environmental educators foster awareness amongst 30,000 San Diegans, encouraging them to incorporate small changes that greatly benefit our shared environment.
