Last September the City initiated its community clean-up program which launched in Old Town. This program, called Beautify Goleta, is designed to make it easy for residents to clean up their homes and yards. The City encourages this by providing roll-off boxes for disposal of unwanted items for a designated time period on specific Saturday mornings for small sections of the City. After the clean-up events, the City has additional street sweeping completed in the identified neighborhoods.
The first Beautify Goleta event was Saturday, September 17, 2016, for the area north of Hollister Avenue between Cardinal and Kellogg Avenues. Over 6.90 tons of material was collected! The second Beautify Goleta event was Saturday, November 5, and focused on residences on Alondra Drive and Mallard Avenue. With the help of community volunteers, over ten tons of material was collected!
Given the success of the program, the City Council has authorized additional clean-up events in the coming months.
