Post 4th of July

firework trash

We all enjoy celebrating the 4th of July, and there’s nothing more patriotic than saving our fish, sharks, turtles, whales and snowy plovers by picking up this eventful day’s litter. Let’s all do our part to make this ‘land of the free… free of debris’!

Every July, the Pacific Beach Coalition supports a team of Earth Heroes who take action by cleaning up our streets and beaches after the celebratory traditions of the 4th of July. Fireworks litter and debris on the streets and from our yards can blow in the wind into San Pedro Creek, Milagra Creek, the Secret Waterfall or our ocean. When its on the beach, it washes out to sea with the tides and becomes harmful marine debris.

When is this happening?

The City of Pacifica places restrictions on the use of fireworks on our beaches.  Read more details including approved beach sites for using “safe and sane” fireworks here.  In addition, historically, fireworks litter is often left behind by revelers and visitors on the days leading up to and after the 4th of July extending this cleanup effort beyond just the holiday.
