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 Info@VallejoWatershedAlliance.org to get started).
You can find your cleanup spot for the Sept. 18 event by calling (707) 645-8258 or emailing Info@ValcoreRecycling.org.
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.
