Jerome’s is partnering with I Love a Clean San Diego for a community cleanup event at the one-mile stretch of beach at La Jolla Shores on July 28 from 8 to 10 a.m.

“With nearly 60 years in San Diego, we know how important area beaches are to our customers” said Jerry Navarra, chairman of Jerome’s. “We’re happy to bring some added fun with giveaways, food and prizes for those who roll up their sleeves for our community.”

Volunteers may discover some unusual items at this particular cleanup due to recent debris — with more expected to come — linked to Japan’s tsunami last year washing ashore along the Pacific coastline. In addition to a Harley-Davidson in British Columbia, a 20-foot Japanese boat in Washington and a dock on the Oregon coast, debris in the form of crates and a plastic bottle covered in Japanese writing has also been found along San Diego’s coastline.

Community members who are interested in participating in the beach cleanup can contact I Love a Clean San Diego at (619) 704-2778 or email to register, or simply show up at 8200 Camino del Oro on the morning of the cleanup. Cleanup supplies will be provided, as well as information about how participants can win special prizes.

The Brian Schultz Memorial Golf Classic and All Green Electronics Recycling are teaming up to host an e-waste collection drive at Whole Foods Market in La Jolla to give community members a chance to ditch those dust-collecting electronics and sensitive e-documents in a safe, secure manner. Not only does proper disposal of e-waste prevent identity theft, it also protects the environment from potentially harmful toxic chemicals that electronics often leave in their wake when improperly disposed. Instead of letting that old computer monitor or cell phone collect dust and take up space in your closet, visit Whole Foods on July 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to recycle responsibly. Whole Foods is located at The Shops at 8825 Villa La Jolla Drive. The event is free and open to the community. For more information, visit or call (562) 983-8139.
