Join more than 40,000 volunteers across the state for the largest volunteer day on the planet! This vital community-building event takes place every September, encouraging residents to cleanup their local shorelines, rivers, creeks, lakes and inland waterways.
“Coastal Cleanup Day is back and better than ever,” says Jennifer Kaiser Nelson, Public Information Officer at Vallejo Flood & Wastewater District. “We’ll have approximately 20 different cleanup sites throughout Vallejo, and volunteers can choose their location. It’s a fun event for all ages.” Sites include Dan Foley Park, Hanns Park, River Park, Cullinan Ranch, Blue Rock Springs Park, Glen Cove Marina and Glen Cove Waterfront Park, Vallejo Municipal Marina, Lake Dalwigk, Meadows at Catalina and Delta Meadows Park, Rindler Creek (Coach Ln at Fairgrounds Drive, and White Slough (behind EcoThrift).
Solano County Cleanup organizers are committed to eliminating the waste created by the cleanup itself. They ask volunteers to bring reusable cleanup supplies, such as work gloves, a water bottle, or a bucket to help ensure their work sites generate no trash of their own. Each site will be well-stocked with the necessary supplies if needed.
When? Saturday, September 23 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon
