Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for ways to contribute this Earth Day? While we are still unable to gather in person, we encourage our residents to set up a volunteer litter clean-up crew within your own household anytime in the month of April. This year's focus is on beverage container clean-up, redeemable at the reopened CRV Redemption Center at 99 Southgate Avenue. For more information, visit our Beverage Container Recycling webpage

Email Leilani Ramos or call 650-991-8127 for litter clean-up supplies.

Post your volunteer clean-up photos to instagram and tag @dalycitygov and we’ll feature you on our account!
