Register here to secure your spot to help clean up creeks in the City of Dublin!  

Dublin’s Creek Cleanup Day coincides with International Coastal Cleanup Day and is part of California Coastal Cleanup Day, which is the largest volunteer event in the United States. We hope you will join us on September 17, 9:00 a.m. to noon, to help cleanup the creeks in our backyard!

Update, September 9: The volunteer spots for the three original creek sites were filled very quickly. As a result, the City of Dublin and Zone 7 were able to open up two additional sites where volunteers can help!

All volunteers will receive more detailed information prior to the creek cleanup event.  In the meantime, here are some tips to help make your Creek Cleanup Day a success:

  1. Important: The City of Dublin and Zone 7 require a waiver from all participants. Please bring a signed waiver with you to the event. All underage children must have their waiver signed by a parent or guardian.  If your older teen (15+) will be dropped off at the event, be sure that the waiver has been signed by a parent or guardian beforehand. 
  2. Bring a reusable water bottle. Bulk water only will be provided at each site. 
  3. Wear close-toed shoes, long pants, and a hat.  Wear sunscreen.
  4. Latex gloves will be available for all volunteers, but feel free to bring your own work gloves.

Please reach out to the Environmental Services Division if you have additional questions at es@dublin.ca.gov or 925-833-6630. 

2021 Creek Cleanup Day

During 2021's Creek Cleanup event, volunteers collected approximately 750 pounds of garbage and 150 pounds of recyclables. This is litter that otherwise would have made it into our local creeks and ultimately into San Francisco Bay.  Thank you to all the volunteers that participated this year. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
