Take Responsibility. Just Pick It Up.

It all started with ZeroTrash Laguna on October 6, 2007 when Laguna Beach resident Chip McDermott got sick of seeing trash all over the streets and decided to do something about it. He rallied together with local businesses to create what is now known as the 1st Saturday program. At 10am on the 1st Saturday of every month, local business owners (our storefront supporters) provide volunteers with food, coffee and trash pickers, and together we clean up the streets of our cities.
