Coastal Cleanup Day is Back!

Join more than 65,000 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. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, September 18 from 9 a.m. to noon for the group event. Individual DIY cleanups are also taking place throughout the month of September: you select the time and place, and we’ll provide supplies (just email to get started).

You can find your cleanup spot for the Sept. 18 event by calling (707) 645-8258 or emailing

Additional Info

If you are under 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver before participating. All cleanup supplies will be provided, but volunteers should wear sunscreen, sturdy shoes, a hat and gloves. If you have them, bring a bucket and reusable water bottle. When you check in at your cleanup location, you will be given trash bags, latex gloves and a data card to tally collected items.

This year’s local cleanups are made possible through the active participation of the cities and counties of Solano and Yolo, the California Coastal Commission, Vallejo Flood & Wastewater District, Valcore Recycling, Recology Vallejo, and the Greater Vallejo Recreation District.

One of Vallejo’s gems, Lake Chabot is a 55-acre reservoir, a beautiful spot enjoyed by walkers, fishermen, picnickers and more. Please  join us to learn about the lake, its history, and the results of our recent public use survey. Representatives from the Greater Vallejo Recreation District, Friends of Lake Chabot, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Vallejo Flood & Wastewater District, City of Vallejo and Solano Resource Conservation District will be on hand to share their roles and answer questions.

We’ll start at 9:00 with refreshments and introductions, with time to explore maps and other information about this watershed. The program will run from 9:15 until 11:00, when we’ll address group questions and suggestions. If time permits, Vallejo Watershed Alliance members will calendar activities for the next twelve months after that discussion. Members of the public are invited to come for the presentations or stay for the entire time.

RSVP to or (707) 652-7812.
