Volunteers Clean-up Albany Shoreline on Earth Day

575 pounds of garbage and 53 pounds of recyclable materials!

Volunteers came out on a perfect Bay Area sunny day to show their Albany shoreline some love by cleaning it up to celebrate Earth Day!

Families, groups and children joined in the scavenger hunt for stuff and brought it proudly back to be weighed. We collected 575 pounds of garbage and 53 pounds of recyclable materials.

We also had eight creek clean-up sites in Richmond and San Pablo where about 300 volunteers joined in and collected 4800 pounds of garbage and 200 pounds of recyclables.

We thank all who made our clean-up a success!
