Annual Coastal Cleanup - Fall 2019 - Thank you for those who came out this year!
We would like to thank all of the volunteers who came out on September 21, 2019 to help clean our community. Volunteers came out to meet City staff over breakfast and, after receiving safety equipment and materials, went out into different areas of the city to participate in the California Coastal Commission's Annual Coastal Cleanup. Together we were able to clear 25 cubic yards of garbage in the following clean up areas:
- Bair Island Bike Path
- Bayfront Canal and Douglas Court
- Downtown, Little River Park, Transit Lot
- Marshall and Broadway (between Chestnut and Maple)
- James Avenue and Sequoia High School
- Redwood Creek (behind Kohl's)
- Redwood Creek (at Veteran's and Main)
An additional cleanup of Bair Island also resulted in the removal of 2,000 pounds of garbage and 70 pounds of recycling.
We are grateful for the continued support of our Sponsors. It is with their help that events like these are possible.
- County of San Mateo

Thank you to the 2019 Spring Cleanup Volunteers!
Twice a year, Redwood City’s Pride and Beautification Committee holds a special volunteer clean up day to beautify specific sites or areas, and to promote year-round pride in Redwood City. Cleanups target school sites, the waterfront, parks, streets, and many other areas. Spring clean up days are often combined with annual California Coastal Cleanup Day or Earth Day.
These clean up days have shown great success, bringing together volunteers from all walks of life who take pride in helping to keep Redwood City clean and attractive.
Community members are invited to show their pride in Redwood City by volunteering for a clean up day. Volunteers are provided with a complimentary continental breakfast.
