RAIN CAN’T STOP SOLANO COUNTY’S COASTAL CLEANUP EFFORT
2,059 volunteers spend a very wet Saturday morning removing trash and recyclables from County waterways at the annual event
Saturday, September 21, 2013: 2,059 Solano County volunteers braved the first real rains of the season to be part of today’s State-wide cleanup effort at sites on waterways throughout the County. Joining almost 100,000 other Californians in the California Coastal Commission’s 29th Annual Coastal Cleanup, these volunteers were part of an international cleanup effort to protect the world’s oceans from harmful debris making its way to coastlines from local beaches, waterways, and inland areas.
Solano County volunteers contributed three hours this wet morning to remove a total of 41,968 pounds of trash and 2,587 pounds of recyclables from waterways across the County. 78 miles of neighborhood parks, hiking trails, bridges, creeks, and lakes are cleaner because of those efforts, an increase of 8 miles from 2012. Volunteers collected buckets full of plastic bags, food wrappers, and cigarette butts while heavy lifters removed tires, paint cans, and large appliances.
