On Saturday, September 20, 312 volunteers removed 9,540 pounds (4.77 tons) of trash and recyclables from waterways in Yolo County and an estimated 1,500 pounds of trash and recyclables from Solano County. Some of the most unusual items found were a dryer with a full load of clothes still in it, a complete toilet, and the bill acceptor to a change machine.
Along Putah Creek, 110 volunteers removed an estimated 1,500 pounds of trash and recyclables from both banks of Putah Creek in Yolo and Solano Counties.
We would like to thank all the volunteers who gave of their time to cleanup our littered waterways, without you this event would not be possible!
We'd also like to thank the county coordinators and site captains for their hours spent planning this event. Special thanks to the Yolo County Central Landfill, Waste
Management, and Vacaville Sanitary for providing dumpsters and waiving landfill fees and to the Yolo County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and the Yolo County Central Landfill for providing water bottles for our volunteers!
Along Putah Creek, we'd like to thank the Cities of Winters and Davis and the Lower Putah Creek Coordinating Committee for their continued support of this event. The Pizza Factory and Roundtable Pizza in Winters provided generous discounts on pizza for our volunteers.
We hope to see you again next year!
