You Can Help Clean Up Solano County!
Solano County holds three large cleanup events each year. Community volunteers remove trash and improperly disposed of recyclables from our waterways, open spaces and roadways. Each event is an opportunity to spend a portion of a day in an intense effort to make our County a better place. Cleanups are a great way for students to earn community service hours, clubs and service organizations to participate in an organized service project with a big impact, and for families, friends and individuals to spend some quality time giving back to the County, in the company of other like-minded people.
We're getting ready to Celebrate Earth Day 2017 with a County-wide clean up to be held Saturday, April 22 at locations throughout the County. Download the event flier here, and watch this space for more information.
Next, we'll celebrate World Environment Day by cleaning up Lake Berryessa, the source of drinking water for more than 500,000 Solano County residents. Cleanup events will take place on Sunday, June 4, and you'll be able to find sign up and location information here closer to the event.
The Grandaddy of Cleanups, both in Solano County and in California, is Coastal Cleanup Day. This event takes place on the 3rd Saturday in September every year and draws hundreds of thoughsands of volunteers out across the state to stop trash from entering our waterways and traveling to the ocean.
All three Solano County cleanups are coodinated by Solano Resource Conservation District, and you can always find information about the event on this website.
Watch for information about upcoming events, posted here and on our front page. We'd love to see you out there!
The next cleanup event will be the Earth Day County-wide Cleanup. Sponsored by the County and its Cities, this event features clean-up sites throughout the County on the closest Saturday to April 22 each year.
In June, the World Environment Day Cleanup at Lake Berryessa, is a growing event that takes place on the first Sunday in June, to celebrate World Environment Day by protecting the drinking water source for more than 500,000 Solano County residents.
