Coast and Creek Cleanup Coming Soon! Together We Make a Difference

SUISUN CITY, Calif. - On Saturday, September 17, 2011, Suisun City residents will come out to clean trash and debris from local urban creeks, marshes, and bays, as part of the statewide California Coastal Cleanup Day.

Last year, the three-hour citizen event coordinated by Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District collected nearly 4000 pounds of trash and recyclables from just the Suisun Waterfront and Estuary, the Rush Ranch area, and Belden’s Landing.

Throughout the cities of Suisun City and Fairfield, the 2010 Coast & Creek Cleanup volunteers covered 23 miles of waterways. The event was a huge success, due to the growing number of volunteers each year. Thank you to the tremendous turnout of our community members, like Trish Abbatiello of Sunset Bay Kayaks. For several years, she has provided kayaks to volunteers to help remove trash that is otherwise difficult to reach from the shore.

Would you like to make a difference?

Groups and individuals are invited to participate at any of the cleanup sites. No experience is required, but each volunteer (or parent/guardian if a minor) must sign a liability waiver to participate.
