For Immediate Release

Join Redwood City’s Pride and Beautification Committee for the ANNUAL FALL CLEANUP DAY / COASTAL CLEANUP DAY

Redwood City, CA - August 21, 2012 - The community is invited to join the Redwood City Pride and Beautification Committee for the fun, family-friendly annual Fall Cleanup Day/Coastal Cleanup Day, on Saturday September 15th, 2012! This year, in addition to Redwood Creek, the cleanup will focus on sprucing up parts of Brewster Avenue, Marshall Street, the Union Cemetery, Whipple Avenue, Winslow Street, Woodside Road, and other sites. The more debris that is cleaned up in these areas, the less debris ends up in our coastal waterways and the bay!

Participants can meet at 8:30 am on Saturday September 15th at the City’s Public Works Services building, located at 1400 Broadway (near 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.

Redwood City thanks the generous sponsors of the Annual Fall Cleanup Day – San Mateo Credit Union, Recology San Mateo County, San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program, Shinnyo-en, and SIMS Metal Management.

On the same day, Recology sponsors the Great Compost Giveaway at the Public Works Services parking lot. Compost is an excellent addition to existing soil, and also makes a great groundcover to help with weed and erosion control. From 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday, September 15th, residents of Redwood City can take up to one cubic yard of free compost (that's about three garbage cans full) – a limited supply will be shared among Redwood City community members 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 specific sites or areas, 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.
