By Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia,

Sept. 19 is the annual California Coastal Cleanup, with events along the Richmond and Pinole shorelines.

I hope you’ll join us for a morning picking up trash from our San Francisco Bay shoreline. We work hard for a great cause, and have fun!

This is my 25th year sponsoring a cleanup at Marina Bay in Richmond, in partnership with the Watershed Project and the City of Richmond.

This service event is a great opportunity to join friends and neighbors as environmental stewards, improving the health and beauty of our San Francisco Bay shoreline. A free healthy lunch will also be served.

Wear sturdy shoes, and bring a sunhat, refillable water bottle and debris bucket, if you have one.

To quote Mahatma Ghandi, ” … service is noblest which is rendered for its own sake.”

Here are the locations for cleanup events in West County, including a special cleanup at San Pablo Creek in El Sobrante on September 12**.
