What is Earth Day?

Earth Day is a civic stewardship movement which started in the United States in 1970 and is now internationally recognized on April 22 of each year. Having an Earth Day reminds each of us to take action to help protect our communities and environment.

What is the Solano County Earth Day Cleanup?

The annual Solano County Earth Day Cleanup is a series of trash cleanup events organized by local entities across Solano County. This year, due to COVID-19, there are no organized county cleanups. Volunteer by cleaning up any trash you find in your neighborhood on Saturday, April 24 and record that information using the free CleanSwell mobile app.

Why Participate?

From being an eyesore to harmful to wildlife and a public health issue, litter affects us all. It's also something each person can personally address with minimum effort: even one piece of trash collected helps clean up our communities and prevent future harm to people and wildlife. Together, we can make a difference.
