Can you give two hours of your time on Saturday, September 18, to make our 94803 Zip code area cleaner and more beautiful?

Saturday, September 18, 2021

Please read the safety tips before participating in this event.

Sponsored in part by Coastal Cleanup Day and El Sobrante Green Teams

: You and all El Sobrante / Richmond residents, businesses, organizations, schools, places of worship are invited to participate.

What: National Cleanup Day. Join or form a local team or individually clean up litter/trash around your property, block or nearby litter hot spots. Check our web site for suggested areas. Let’s get our streets, sidewalks, shrubbery cleaned up. Also it’s a good time to do some fire mitigation by reducing wildfire fuel. ∞

Where: The entire 94803 Zip code area (El Sobrante/Richmond) needs cleaning.
Gathering point: El Sobrante Public Library, 4191 Appian Way, ES, 10 AM.

When: Choose your own time on Saturday, September 18. Cleanup hours of the local event run from 10 AM to 2 PM. After cleaning up, come back to the Library for music, snacks and info tables, from 2 PM to 4 PM.

How: Sign up in advance online, at, or come in person to the ES Library on the day of the event.

Meet up: Volunteers will be at the El Sobrante Public Library, from 10 AM, on, to sign you in and provide you with equipment (trash bags, gloves, grabbers, vests), if needed. Keep the gloves to reuse! Return grabbers and bring any bagged trash / recyclables by 2:30 PM (or you can use your own equipment and dispose of trash / recyclables at a designated drop point or in your own bins).

Together we will make a difference! Find out more at:

Clean Up Dead/Flammable Vegetation: You could participate in National Clean Up day by removing dead/flammable vegetation and trees at your home or help a neighbor in the community. Dead and flammable trees act as fuel during a fire. Hence, removing them greatly helps with wildfire prevention. Please let us know if you need help with fuel reduction at your property or if you are available to help a neighbor with it.

    We are an El Sobrante family in the Carriage Hills area who would like to help with clean up of dead/flammable vegetation or trash pick up.

    • Hi, Mary, thanks for your family’s help with keeping El Sobrante safe. We haven’t been keeping track of comments on the website but hope you made it to our Sept. 18 event and some of our monthly “Third Saturday” cleanups. Be sure to check the website to keep up to date on our activities, and thanks again for caring!
