Join Redwood City’s Pride and Beautification Committee in Celebration of EARTHDAY 2007 at the ANNUAL SPRING CLEANUP DAY
Redwood City, CA - March 30 , 2007 - Redwood City’s Earth Day Spring Cleanup Day will take place on Saturday April 21st, 2007, focusing on sprucing up Redwood Creek, Little River Park, Stulstaft Park, and the Port area, as well as beautifying an area near the Redwood City Caltrain station.
This is a great, easy, and fun project for kids, adults, and the whole family, and is perfect for doing your part on Earth Day! And, this project meets community service requirements for many schools.
Community members are invited to volunteer and show their civic pride in Redwood City! Participants should meet at 8:30 am on Saturday April 21st 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 this year’s targeted areas.
Then at noon, volunteers will meet for a special free BBQ lunch as a ‘thank you’ for participating in this annual fun project that helps the entire community.
On the same day, Allied Waste Services 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 April 21 st and 22 nd from 10 am to 6 pm, Redwood City residents can bring 2 or 3 trash cans, bags, boxes, or other containers to the Public Works Services parking lot and load up with free compost – a limited supply is available to be shared among our community members on a first-come, first-served basis. The compost is generously provided by Allied Waste Services.
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, by cleaning and beautifying school sites, the waterfront, parks, streets, and other areas.
Redwood City's Pride and Beautification Committee thanks the generous sponsors of the Spring Cleanup and the Great Compost Giveaway – San Mateo Credit Union, Norcal Waste Systems of San Mateo County, and Allied Waste Services. Please call 650-780-7300 for more information about the Spring Cleanup.
