On Saturday, June 5, 2021 at approximately 10 a.m., the Port of San Diego Harbor Police Department along with Recycle for Veterans will be conducting a beach cleanup at Venezuela Cove, 2970 North Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101. June 5th is recognized by the United Nations as World Environment Day. The purpose of this day is to acknowledge “we cannot turn back time” but we can “reimagine, recreate and restore” natural habitats and environments throughout the world. Port of San Diego Harbor Police officers are tasked with protecting San Diego Bay and this event, with volunteers from Recycle for Veterans, is just another way to accomplish that goal.
Recycle for Veterans is a veteran-owned organization whose goal is to “show the world that a group of motivated people can make a difference.” The Port of San Diego Harbor Police Department is proud to partner with Recycle for Veterans to help be environmental champions for the waterfront, our tenants, and our community.
