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.
Thank you to all the volunteers who joined us for Creek Cleanup Day in 2023! An event of this magnitude would not be possible without your help. In 2023, we hosted cleanups at five creek locations across Dublin. Approximately 140 volunteers, equipped with gloves, grabbers, and buckets, worked together to collect plastic wrappers, cigarette butts, and other waste from our creeks. In total, over six cubic yards of waste was collected.

Help Clean Up Your Neighborhoods Year-Round
Throughout the year, you can report your neighborhood cleanup by recording data on the CleanSwell app. When you clean up litter left in streets and parks, you prevent that litter from entering the storm drain system. Please do not go into creek areas unless you are participating in a formal cleanup event. For guidance on how to use the Clean Swell app, this YouTube video provides complete instructions.
