Vallejo Sanitation & Flood Control District is proud to announce that the 29th annual California Coastal Cleanup Day will take place on Saturday, September 21 from 9 a.m. to noon at more than a dozen locations throughout Vallejo. Volunteers will clean trash and debris from creeks, lakes, marshes and shoreline throughout this area. Join thousands of other 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. Across the state, California Coastal Cleanup Day is a partnership between the California Coastal Commission, Whole Foods Market, non-profit groups, cities, agencies and counties.
Last year in Vallejo, 940 volunteers picked up more than 67,000 pounds of trash and recyclables.
