Volunteer beach cleanup Saturday in Playa del Rey

Beachfront location that the locals call Toes Beach.

The June Nothin' But Sand beach cleanup is set to take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at Toes Beach in Playa del Rey.

Hosted by Heal the Bay, the cleanups are held on the third Saturday of each month at different locales and are an opportunity to lend a hand helping keep our local shores tidy.

All cleaning supplies will be provided, so volunteers are welcome to just show up (those younger than 12 need to be accompanied by a parent).

Attendees should plan on bringing their own drinking water as well as a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. More information on what to wear and bring is available on the Heal the Bay website.

Liability waivers will be available on-site and must be signed before pitching in. Participants 17 and younger must have a parent or guardian sign their form.

Parking is either metered or available near Del Rey Lagoon.

Volunteers should plan to meet in the parking lot at Pacific and 62nd avenues. The staging area will be just west of the bike path, near Lifeguard Tower 40.

Groups of 10 or more are asked to call (800) 432-5229, ext. 148 to let organizers know they plan to join in.
