The 2014 Putah Creek Cleanup, hosted by Putah Creek Council in conjunction with California Coastal Cleanup Day and the International Coastal Cleanup, took place on Saturday, September 20th. Together, 79 volunteers were able to clear 2 miles of waterway and roadside of litter, old tires, hazardous spray paint cans and much much more. In all, over 3,000 pounds of garbage and 400 pounds of recyclables were collected and properly disposed of. The most unusual trash item was probably the Vespa scooter, which was found on a steep creek bank. The time and energy contributed by this outstanding group of volunteers was vital to the day’s huge accomplishment!
