Provide Input on the City’s New Community Cleanup Volunteer Program

This year’s Coastal Cleanup Day was a huge success, with over 730 lbs of trash and recyclables collected in Goleta alone, and over 5,548 lbs of collected county-wide!  We had such a great time at this event, we want to keep this idea going. Please fill out a quick form to let us know if you want to participate in our new community cleanup volunteer program.

Trash and pollution reduction is one of the Environmental Services Division’s top goals. We have many programs aimed at this but can’t be everywhere at once, and we need your help. We want to keep community-based cleanups going, expand cleanups throughout the city, and keep our neighborhoods, open spaces, creeks, and beaches clean and safe year-round. We are looking for your ideas!

Get involved!
