Coastal Cleanup Day a Great Success

The gals at Builders Site Protection had a wonderful time participating in Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday September 17th. The generous donation that Builders Site Protection provided to the Lake Poway cleanup site helped volunteers collect hundreds of pounds of trash and recycling. Builders Site Protection is happy to have contributed to improving the quality of San Diego’s inland and coastal waterways and looks forward to helping again next year.

Builders Site Protection Donates Materials for Coastal Cleanup Day

Great news for the San Diego environmental community! Builders Site Protection will be donating reusable materials for the 2011 Coastal Clean-up Day at Lake Poway on September 17th. Coastal Cleanup Day is a global effort to clean up polluted waterways and prevent trash and runoff from reaching the ocean. Last year, 152 countries and over nine million volunteers collected 145 million pounds of trash on a single day. Builders Site Protection will supply Coastal Cleanup Day volunteers with five-gallon buckets for trash and recycling collection. Providing volunteers with buckets that can be reused for other purposes prevents the need for plastic trash bags, which are one of the most common types of marine pollution. Builders Site Protection's valuable donation will contribute to reducing plastic waste generated by cleanup activities.

Our own Surface Protection Expert Heather Ley will be site captain for the Lake Poway cleanup effort. For more information about Builders Site Protection or how to volunteer at Coastal Cleanup Day email Heather at
