FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance is partnering with I Love A Clean San Diego to host a Community Clean Up Day, 9-11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 12.
Volunteers of all ages are invited to grab buckets, work gloves and litter grabbers to walk Fallbrook downtown streets to pick up litter, stencil storm drains, and clean up trash dumped along the Pico Promenade walking path and waterway.
FBA and ILACSD will set-up a check-in table at the parking lot below the Fallbrook Branch Library at 124 S. Mission Road. All are invited to come at 9 a.m. for a talk to learn more about local watersheds and tips on recycling, then grab supplies and help clean up. The goal is to divert litter from the San Luis Rey Watershed and keep it from traveling to the Pacific Ocean as well as keep Fallbrook streets clean for the health and wellbeing of all Fallbrook residents.
They will have bags and gloves for volunteers, but everyone can help make a smaller eco-footprint by bringing their own reusable supplies from home. The organizations will track the amount and types of litter removed, sort out recycling and compostable litter, and dispose of the rest. This data helps give the organizations a snapshot of what is impacting this region year to year.
This cleanup qualifies for community service credit. After the cleanup volunteers will receive instructions for logging their hours and verifying their community service hours.
Participants may register at http://www.fallbrookbeautification.org. Each participant will receive a complementary Jersey Mike's Sub certificate at the event.
