Pollution prevention starts at our front doors. Trash can travel through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become Bay pollution. Though we can’t volunteer all together during COVID-19 we can still work together to protect our happy place.
In May, join your community, in a socially distanced cleanup in your very own neighborhood and local natural areas to prevent litter from making its way into our waterways.
Stay connected with thousands of other residents hosting their own cleanups and help us track the amount of trash we’re keeping off our streets and creeks.
The San Conservation
Corps is a non-profit that provides job training and education to young adults.
Our Zero Waste and Recycling Department focuses on various projects such as
tire, electronic waste, oil, and mattress recycling. We are excited to
participate with Valley Water in the upcoming National River Clean
Up event. If you find illegally dumped tires while cleaning your
neighborhoods, please email email@example.com. Provide either the latitude and
longitude, or an address with a brief description of where
the tires are located. We will report to the location the following Monday
to collect the discarded tires. This service prevents tires from entering
landfills and our waterways. Tires that we collect get recycled into landscape
applications, turf, and other uses. We appreciate your help on this growing
issue and hope to assist you soon!
About Coastal Cleanup Day
Coastal Cleanup Day is an international day of action to protect our oceans, watersheds, and wildlife from trash and debris. This massive volunteering effort has an astounding impact on many of our local natural habitats and communities. In 2019, the Ocean Conservancy reports that nearly 800,000 volunteers collectively removed more than 20 million pieces of trash from beaches and waterways around the world.
