Redwood City’s Spring Cleanup to Focus on Spruce Street Pedestrian Overcrossing

Redwood City, CA - February 22, 2005 - Redwood City’s annual Spring Cleanup will focus on making the Spruce Street Pedestrian Overcrossing (over the railroad tracks) more inviting and attractive for the neighbors who use it every day. It’s a great opportunity for volunteers to show their civic pride by joining others to get rid of trash, remove weeds, clean up graffiti, and make the overcrossing shine!

It takes place on Saturday March 12, 2005. Volunteers should meet at 8:30 am at the City’s Public Works Services building, located at 1400 Broadway (near Broadway and Woodside Road). After a complimentary continental breakfast, clean-up teams will move out and descend on the Spruce Street Pedestrian Overcrossing, trash bags in hand, to upgrade the look of this well-used bridge. At noon, volunteers will meet for a special free lunch as a ‘thank you’ for showing their civic pride. Both the continental breakfast and the lunch are being generously donated by the San Mateo Credit Union, and other materials are provided by Norcal Waste Systems of San Mateo County. Please call 650-780-7300 for more information.

On the same day, BFI will sponsor the Great Compost Giveaway. Compost is an excellent addition to existing soil, and also makes a great groundcover to help with weed and erosion control. On March 12 and March 13, members of the Redwood City community can bring 2 or 3 trash cans, bags, boxes, or other containers to the Public Works Services parking lot and load up with free mulch – a limited supply will be shared among our community’s neighbors on a first-come, first-served basis.

Twice a year, Redwood City’s Pride and Beautification Committee holds these special volunteer cleanup days to focus efforts on beautifying a specific site or area, and to promote a year-round pride in Redwood City. In past years, Redwood City’s Fall and Spring Cleanups have targeted school sites, the waterfront, parks, streets, and other areas. These cleanup days have shown great success, bringing together volunteers from all walks of life who share the pride of helping to keep Redwood City clean and attractive. Volunteers for these events are always welcome, and should call the above contact to become involved.
