Event description
Let’s help clean our creeks by cleaning up in our own neighborhoods and local natural areas.

About this event

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!

We won’t be hosting in-person sites so to keep the creeks clean we’ll be cleaning up in our own neighborhoods and local natural areas.

Put those grocery bags and gardening gloves to use! Only collect what you can carry during your cleanup 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 cleanup 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.

Enroll in the Saturday of your choice. By pledging/registering, you will receive free exclusive tips on conducting a safe and effective cleanup. Pledge/Register your cleanup to stay connected with thousands of other residents hosting their own cleanups 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.
