Marine pollution is a serious and mainly man-made global problem. Oiltanking Daya Bay, a coastal terminal in China, has recognized marine pollution as a local challenge as well. For this reason, the terminal teamed up with the local Marine Conservation Volunteer Service to organize marine environmental protection activities in Daya Bay. About 50 employees and their families volunteered for beach cleanup campaigns in March and December 2016, collecting trash along the shoreline of Daya Bay. In March and December 2017, again in total 50 employees and volunteers, together 150 people took part, under the motto "China's dream, volunteers, environment and marine protection" to clean up the beach and also Yagonding Park.

The Oiltanking terminal has already initiated similar trash collection drives in the past, as in 2011, when a team of 20 employees and their children volunteered to remove garbage from the hills around Daya Bay.
