You Can Help Clean Up Solano County!
Solano County holds three large cleanup events each year: Earth Day Cleanup, World Environment Day, and Coastal Cleanup Day. 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.
Coastal Cleanup Day: Saturday, September 15, 2018
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 thousands of volunteers out across the state to stop trash from entering our waterways and traveling to the ocean.
All three Solano County cleanups are coordinated by Solano Resource Conservation District, and you can always find information about the events on this website.
