Join Redwood City's Pride and Beautification Committee for the Annual Fall Coastal Cleanup This Saturday, September 21st

Redwood City, Calif. - The community is invited to join the Redwood City Pride and Beautification Committee for the annual Fall Coastal Cleanup, on Saturday, September 21, 2013. The event includes a continental breakfast at 8:30am and a volunteer "thank you" BBQ at noon. Volunteers check in starting at 8:30am at the Public Works Services Office at 1400 Broadway where they will receive their team assignments and clean up materials.

This year, in addition to Redwood Creek, the cleanup will focus on six additional areas: Adams/Redwood Streets, Chestnut Street, Maryland Street (between Delaware & Woodside), Union Cemetery, Winslow Street, and Woodside/Spruce Street. The goal of this annual event that is part of the California Coastal Cleanup is to remove as much debris as possible so that debris is minimized in our coastal waterways and the bay.

On the same day, in conjunction with the Coastal Cleanup, Recology is sponsoring the Great Compost Giveaway also at the Public Works Services Office from 9am-3pm. Compost can serve as a soil amendment or ground cover, weed control, and soil erosion. Redwood City residents can take up to one cubic yard of compost (equivalent to three full garbage cans). Only Redwood City residents can take advantage of the limited supply on a first-come-first-serve basis.

"Every year, hundreds of volunteers of all ages come out to help us keep Redwood City beautiful and our waterways clean, and have fun while they are doing it!" states Mayor Aguirre. "It's events like this that really demonstrate our community's dedication to the local environment in their hometown."
Redwood City thanks our generous Fall Cleanup sponsors - San Mateo Credit Union, Recology, SIMS Metal Management, San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program, and Starbucks.
