Carmichael and Arden Arcade

We are trying something new at selected creeks in October – organized clean-ups and Random Acts of Clean-up!

Public clean-up sites in Carmichael
and Arden Arcade are listed below.

Review the site descriptions and check the map links to select your type of clean-up and site.

No registration is required if you choose Random Acts of Clean-up. Please report your results before the end of October to help us track participation and make your clean-up count. We would like to offer a Creek Week T-shirt to say “Thank you!” Please follow this Guidance.

Look for “click here” to register for the October Organized Clean-up of your choice. (The “Volunteer” button is to register for future spring clean-ups.)

 

Please review the Volunteer Checklist and COVID-19 Guidance so you arrive prepared!

Once you register, our administrative volunteers may contact you to confirm your clean-up site location, provide you with additional instructions, or answer any questions you may have.  You may be reassigned to a location as space allows.

Please report at 9:00am on the designated Saturday (dates vary)  to your confirmed clean-up site. Don’t forget your mask, gloves and hand sanitizer. Your team leader will provide you with instructions, garbage bags and help get you started.

If you choose Random Acts of Clean-up, check the sites below for recommendations.  A neighborhood clean-up will prevent trash from going into the stormdrain system and polluting our creeks.           Thank you!
