Clean and Beautiful
Dear El Sobrante and Richmond Neighbors,
We love the El Sobrante area, which includes parts of unincorporated Contra Costa County and parts of the City of Richmond. However, the growing litter and illegal dumping problems here defiles the natural beauty of our commujnity and impacts our quality of life. It’s not only ugly – it’s bad for the environment and wildlife, attracts vermin and spreads disease.
We’ve had enough! We deserve better.
It’s up to all of us, our village, to do our part to Keep El Sobrante Clean and Beautiful. So please join us on National Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 18, 2021 to launch an ongoing effort to clean and beautify our town.
– The El Sobrante Green Team
The El Sobrante Green Teams are community volunteers sponsored in part by the El Sobrante Chamber of Commerce.
