Register using the Online Form to the left. Your information will be sent to our administrative volunteers who will contact you within 3 business days to confirm your clean-up site location, provide you with instructions, and answer any questions you may have.
Public clean-up sites in Citrus Heights are listed below. Please tell us your preferred choice on the form. You will be assigned to a location as space allows.
Please report at 9:00am sharp on Saturday, April 13th to your confirmed clean-up site. Your team leader will provide you with instructions, garbage bags and help get you started.
Use the checklist below so that you come prepared against the natural and man-made elements. Please come prepared to get a little muddy. Many of the clean-up sites have poison oak.
- Your own drinking water
- A bucket or re-usable shopping bag to collect light trash (per person)
- Comfortable, washable clothes
- Long pants and long sleeves
- Hat and Sunscreen
- Gloves (work or gardening type)
- Shoes that can get wet and muddy
- Waterproof boots (optional)
- Grabbing tool or rake (optional)
IMPORTANT: All children must be with a responsible adult as the debris, water, or slippery stream banks may be hazardous. If you bring a child or group of children, your most important job is to supervise and keep them safe. Collecting trash is secondary for adults in charge of children.
Thank you for making it possible for them to have this experience!
