Coastal Cleanup Day – SFBWS

Saturday, September 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

Pollution prevention starts at our front doors. Trash can travel through storm drains, creeks, and rivers to become Bay pollution.

Pledge/register today and help be the solution to water pollution!

This registration is not for an in-person site. You are registering to clean up in your neighborhood.

Put those grocery bags and gardening gloves to use! Only collect what you can carry during your clean-up and what you have space to dispose of in your home trash and recycling bins. When registering, you will have the option to request assistance to get basic clean-up supplies: trash bags, gloves, and litter sticks. Before you explore this option, we STRONGLY encourage you to re-purpose items from home, like gardening gloves and grocery bags, to limit travel and exposure.

By pledging/registering, you will receive free exclusive tips on conducting a safe and effective clean-up. Pledge/Register your clean-up to stay connected with thousands of other residents hosting their clean-ups and to help us track the amount of trash we’re keeping off our streets and creeks.

Pledge today! Join us in cleaning up Santa Clara County!

Talk trash and help spread the word by sharing posts and photos through social media. Tag us @scvwd on IG/FB or @valleywater on Twitter.
