FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance, partnering with I Love A Clean San Diego, will host a Fallbrook Community Clean Up Day, 9 a.m.-11a.m. Saturday May 13.
Volunteers of all ages are invited to grab buckets, work gloves and litter grabbers to walk Fallbrook downtown streets to pick up litter and recyclables, as well as to clean up trash dumped along the Pico Promenade walking path and waterway.
FBA and ILACSD will host a check-in table at the parking lot below the Fallbrook Branch Library at 124 S. Mission in downtown Fallbrook. Join them at 9 a.m. for a short talk to learn more about their watersheds and tips on recycling, then grab supplies and help clean up. Their goal is to divert litter from the San Luis Rey Watershed and keep it from traveling to the Pacific Ocean as well as to keep Fallbrook streets clean for the health and wellbeing of all Fallbrook residents.
FBA/ILACSD will have bags and gloves available, but volunteers 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 their region year to year.
This cleanup qualifies for community service credit.
