Beaches and waterways around San Diego County were given a little extra love today with post-holiday trash clean-ups.

Volunteers with the Surfrider Foundation picked up garbage at the Ocean Beach Pier, Belmont Park in Mission Beach, Crystal Pier at Pacific Beach and the Oceanside Harbor beach.

"We've seen a significant decrease in the amount trash collected at our annual 'Morning After Mess' since the drinking ban was put into effect in 2008, but there is still a lot of garbage left behind and we need volunteers to help," said Haley Haggerstone of Surfrider before the event.

A separate cleanup was held at the San Elijo Lagoon in the Cardiff-by-the-Sea section of Encinitas, led by The H2O Patrol.
