The Sacramento Stormwater Quality Partnership is teaming up with the community to keep our waterways clean. Be part of the team! Below you will find several ways to get started. Whether it’s getting the word out on social media, organizing a clean-up event or joining others, we can all make a difference!
The best way for you to create a cleaner river is to host a neighborhood clean-up. Recruit friends, family and neighbors to help!
Consider hosting a virtual or socially-distanced clean-up. It’s easy to do with our Trash Your Trash toolkit for instructions.
In our region, there are quite a few high-trash areas that have the potential to impact our family’s daily lives, as well as the neighborhood around us. It’s up to us to take the first step and lead by example. Show our children, friends, and neighbors that keeping our play-zones and neighborhoods trash-free can be both quick and easy. Here’s a few easy tips and tricks:
Share your clean-up efforts and photos on social media! Use the hashtag #TrashYourTrash and encourage others to get involved.
SSQP can provide a Pick-Up Kit to interested visitors! You can submit a request for your own kit using the SSQP Clean Up Kit Request form.
In the kit, we can provide:
Do you pledge to dispose of your trash, to pick up litter when you see it, and to remember that clean streets equals clean rivers? Submit a pledge to make it official!
The Sacramento Stormwater Quality Partnership (SSQP) team will be tracking the number of pledges we receive. Help us reach our goal of 200 pledges! Share your efforts, whether big or small, with friends, family, coworkers and other river friendly individuals!
Be sure to check back frequently to track our progress.
