May is National River Cleanup Month!

Published on April 29, 2021

Help keep trash out of our local creeks and San Francisco Bay by starting in your own neighborhood. Pick any Saturday during the month of May from 9 a.m. to noon and commit to your own socially-distanced cleanup.

Sign up now! 

You will also have the option to request free trash bags, gloves, and litter sticks— available for pick up at locations throughout the Santa Clara County (To limit travel, exposure, and waste, it is encouraged to re-purpose items from home when you can, like gardening gloves and grocery bags). After registration, you’ll receive tips on conducting a safe and effective cleanup.

If you are registered for a cleanup in Palo Alto, you can have your supplies delivered to your Palo Alto residence or business by indicating this preference on the registration form. City of Palo Alto staff will contact you to set up a supply drop-off.  For additional questions, please contact or call (650) 329-2122.
