Clearlake, CA – April 29th, 2018

On Saturday, April 28th, the City of Clearlake, in coordination with the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, Clearlake Waste Solutions, and Citizens Caring 4 Clearlake, sponsored the annual Clearlake Clean-up Day event. Volunteers, including elected officials, service clubs, citizens, and city staff, spent the morning picking up trash and cleaning various areas in Clearlake.

According to Bruce McCracken of Clearlake Waste Solutions, “We estimate we collected over 120 tons of debris, 50 tires, and 5 tons of scrap metal during today’s clean-up.” Doug Herren, Public Works Director for the City of Clearlake, added, ”We had a great turnout this year with over 86 volunteers and were able to remove a lot of trash from the roadsides and the lake. This community is terrific the way they come together for a common cause.”

Greg Folsom, City Manager, stated “Once again it was my privilege to participate in such a great showing of community spirit. It’s amazing to see the impact that such a group of dedicated citizens can make in cleaning up parts of our city. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers that came out on a Saturday morning to show their Clearlake Pride.”
