For Immediate Release
September 16, 2014
Redwood City, CA - The community is invited to join the Redwood City Pride and Beautification Committee for the fun, family-friendly annual Fall Cleanup Day, on Saturday September 27th, 2014! This year, the cleanup will focus on sprucing up • Chestnut Street • Downtown • Hoover School • Marshall Street • Redwood Creek • Rolison Road • Stulsaft Park • Union Cemetery • Veterans' Boulevard • Woodside Road.
Participants can meet at 8:30 am on Saturday September 27th at the City’s Public Works Services building, located at 1400 Broadway (near Woodside Road). After acomplimentary 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, Shinnyo-En, San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program.
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 27th, residents of Redwood City can take up to three 32-gallon cans/bins of compost – 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.
