An underwater and a beach cleanup are planned for later this month as part of Coastal Cleanup Day in Malibu.
The Malibu Surfing Association, Malibu Divers and the City of Malibu will host the cleanup on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon, according to Michael Blum, an organizer of the event.
During last year's Coastal Cleanup Day, more than 676,768 pounds of trash and 115,773 pounds of recyclable waste were removed from California beaches.
For a second year, Malibu Divers will be conducting an underwater cleanup of Malibu Pier, Blum said.
Other event partners include California State Parks, LA County Department of Beaches & Harbors, Microflex Gloves, Clif Bar, The Malibu Pier, Salvation Malibu, Duke's Malibu and Levi’s® Malibu.
