Self-Guided Neighborhood Cleanup

Self-Guided Neighborhood Cleanup

Can’t make it to one of our in-person creek cleanup sites, but still want to join the effort? Trash can travel through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become marine debris. Pollution prevention starts at our front doors. Do an independent self-guided neighborhood cleanup and help be the solution to water pollution! Independent cleanups conducted on September 17, 2022, will be counted towards Santa Clara County’s overall Coastal Cleanup Day numbers.

Be a community scientist by logging all of the trash that you find with the data collection app Cleanswell. The amount and type of trash collected is used to inform legislation surrounding plastic pollution and to support policies already in place.

Thank you for making a difference in your community and helping our ocean! Show us your cleanup by sharing posts and photos on social media by tagging us with #CCD2022 at @scvwd on IG/FB or @valleywater on Twitter. You can also email volunteer@valleywater.org to tell us about your experience and share photos.
