Frequently asked questions
COVID-19: Follow Your Local Guidelines
To protect your health and slow the spread of the coronavirus, please follow the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html.
For additional information about coronavirus in Solano County, please refer to the Solano County website: http://www.solanocounty.com/depts/ph/coronavirus.asp
If you are sick in any way or have recently been in contact with someone who is sick, please do not go out for a cleanup.
Where are Solano County's cleanup sites?
In your neighborhood or favorite natural space. We invite you and your household to get outside, get active, and collect litter close to home. There is no official cleanup event or location. By getting out in your local community to remove trash – together virtually and physically apart – you can support your neighborhood and stop trash from flowing from Solano to the Sea. Walk around your block, nearby park, beaches or marsh, or favorite trail.
Remember that if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick, please do not choose to participate in a cleanup. Stick with only those individuals who live with you, wear a mask, and practice safe social distancing.
Can I register a family or household?
Yes! When you register, select the number of "tickets" needed for each person in your family or household that will be participating in the cleanup. Please remember to form groups from the same household only, and maintain 6 feet distance from other families or groups.
How can I stay safe?
This is the first major cleanup run by you! By staying in your neighborhood, using face masks and gloves, and limiting groups to household members and following social distancing guidelines, we can stay safe while also preventing tons of litter from entering our creeks, bays and the ocean.

How will I know the impact I had?
Please be sure to track what trash you collected using the CleanSwell app so that the data can be used to influence change. We strongly encourage you to collect trash and recyclables separately and to weigh each bucket or bag to find out how much trash you collected. We will send you a survey asking you to report how much trash you or your group collected.
Where can I learn more about the statewide Coastal Cleanup?
The California Coastal Commission works with cities, counties, and regions across California to implement the annual Coastal Cleanup events, as well as other cleanup activities. For more information, visit http://coastalcleanupday.org/.
