Our signature community clean-up event, 1st Saturday rallies the community to local businesses to clean the streets and receive discounts.
ZeroTrash also advocates for local governments to provide a greater infrastructure for public recycling, trash and cigarette butt disposal.
“Trash Talks” are hands-on school assemblies teaching kids to take personal responsibility in reducing waste & re-enforcing recycling habits. We can do better than landfills!
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.
