Redwood   City, CA – March 20, 2013 – The community is invited to join the  Redwood City Pride and Beautification Committee for the fun,  family-friendly annual Spring Cleanup Day on Saturday April 20, 2013! Get a head-start on Earth Day, which is April 22, by participating  with friends and neighbors in this very popular community-building  cleanup activity.

  • Redwood City’s Earth Day/Spring Cleanup 

    Saturday, April 20, 2013 – 8:30 am Public Works Services building

    Meet at 1400 Broadway (between Chestnut and Woodside)

This year, Redwood City’s Earth Day/Spring Cleanup Day will focus on:

  • Bayfront Canal
  • Hoover Park
  • Downtown
  • Little River Park
  • Marshall St. and Chestnut St.
  • Redwood Creek
  • Union Cemetery
  • Woodside Road

The more debris and litter that is cleaned up in these areas, the nicer our community’s appearance and the less that ends up in our coastal  waterways and the bay.Participants   should meet at 8:30 am on Saturday April 20 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 Spring Cleanup Day –  San Mateo Credit Union, Recology San Mateo County, Shinnyo-en, SIMS  Metal Management, and Keep California Beautiful.

On the same day, Recology San Mateo County 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 ground cover to help  with weed and erosion control. From 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday, April 20,  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.
