The Earth Day clean-up is an annual event hosted by the Alameda County Flood Control & Water Conservation District’s Clean Water Program, to help keep our waterways free of harmful trash by cleaning up in your neighborhoods and local natural areas.
Watershed cleanups start at your doors! Trash travels through storm drains into creeks, and rivers to become harmful pollution.
Cleanups can be on Earth Day, April 22nd, or any day throughout the month of April and will be self-guided and close to home. Local streets, sidewalks, parks, and other natural areas are good choices. Trash within our neighborhoods becomes the trash polluting the coast once they are washed into the storm drains and waterways.
Register today to have your efforts counted!
