Data Tracking Measures Debris

alt

To better understand the types of debris commonly found at cleanups, ILACSD has added a data tracking option for groups to incorporate into their cleanups. Adopt-A-Beach program coordinators across the state have worked together to create a litter tracking card to identify what types of debris are most problematic regionally. The card asks for each volunteer to tally up each item they pick up to obtain a grand total of the types of trash removed from your adopted site.

By filling out these data cards, you will be contributing to a better understanding of the cause and source of litter in our communities and on our beaches in San Diego. These cards not only give us a better idea of what types of trash are most common, but they additionally can help with education, outreach, and legislation to prevent specific harmful items from ending up as marine debris.
