Can I fit in just one more item this week? Thank you!
Even though our Spring Cleanup Day isn’t until Saturday the 28th, I wanted to get this reminder to you now, in the spirit of this Sunday’s Earth Day.
Please plan on attending the City’s Annual Spring Cleanup, and this year we want to also point people to a concurrent event focused on the North Fair Oaks area; both are on April 28. Take a look!
Join Redwood City’s Annual Spring Cleanup Day – Also, “Be Seen Keepin’ it Clean” With RecycleWorks’ North Fair Oaks Neighborhood Cleanup
~ Both events are Saturday, April 28, 2012 ~
8:30 am – noon
Meet at 1400 Broadway
This year’s focus is Redwood Creek, historic Union Cemetery, Hoover School, Woodside Road, and more, plus some cleanup and restoration at Stulsaft Park. Sponsored by Redwood City and its Pride and Beautification Committee. It’s a great, easy, and fun project for kids, adults, and the whole family, and is perfect for doing your part in the spirit of Earth Day. Meets community service requirements for many schools. Free continental breakfast, and free BBQ lunch as a ‘thank you’ for participating!
And, Recology San Mateo County sponsors the Great Compost Giveaway on the same day from 9 am to 3 pm – Redwood City residents can come to the Public Works Services parking lot and get up to a cubic yard of free compost (equivalent to about three full garbage cans). Limited supply; Redwood City residents only.
Visit www.redwoodcity.org/prideandbeautification for call 780-7300 for more info.
Be Seen Keepin’ it Clean:
9 am – noon
Meet at 2600 Middlefield Road
NOTE: for this event only (NOT for the City’s event, above), you must sign a waiver – go to www.RecycleWorks.org.
Join this fun Neighborhood Community Clean-Up Event, sponsored by RecycleWorks, a program of San Mateo County, especially for the North Fair Oaks area.
Breakfast treats are being provided by the San Mateo Credit Union and lunch will be provided by El Grullense for all volunteers. On the day of the clean-up, each volunteer is assigned to a group and leader. Each group will get a map of their location and some collection bags. Every volunteer gets a pair of gloves, or you can help even more by bringing your own gloves and a reusable bucket. Dress in layers, wear closed-toe shoes, and be prepared to get a little dirty.
Please register in advance at www.RecycleWorks.org or by calling 888-442-2666. Forms will be available for students who need to complete community service hours.
