I Love A Clean San Diego's 2012 Coastal Clean-up Day

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diegans braved the heat Saturday to help clean up San Diego.

More than 8,000 volunteers were expected to take part in I Love a Clean San Diego's 2012 Coastal Clean-up Day. These volunteers spent their Saturday morning picking up trash at San Dieguito River Park Lagoon in Del Mar.

"It's getting the community involved in the park and also nature as a whole. We come out to pick up the trash, to take out non-native plants and come together to help our community and the environment as a whole," San Dieguito River Park ranger Leana Bulay said.

Among those lending a helping hand were employees from SDG&E.

"Our environment here is so important.  What we like to do is our part to make this community special by having projects like this and having our employees give back," Mitch Mitchell of SDG&E said.

In all, about150,000 pounds of trash was collected at 88 clean-up sites across the county.
