If you’re tired of seeing those old paint cans in the garage or that old jug of used motor oil in the back shed, bring them to an upcoming household hazardous waste collection event. The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department is holding two events in early October – on Saturday, October 1 in New Cuyama and on Sunday, October 2 in the Santa Ynez Valley.
The largest volunteer cleanup in Santa Barbara County had another huge year. With 100% of the sites reporting, 1221 volunteers collected more than 6,114 pounds of trash and 1,095 pounds of recyclables from 30 sites from Rincon Beach Park to Guadalupe Dunes in Santa Barbara County.
Join our Facebook Page at Facebook.com/SBCoast to keep up with next year's cleanup, September 15th, 2012.

Coastal Cleanup Day, Sept. 17th from 9 until Noon, is the biggest volunteer cleanup event in Santa Barbara County and the world! Join your neighbors at one of our over 25 sites and help protect our coast, creeks and lakes!
How big is the event? Last year, 1267 volunteers cleaned nearly 5110 pounds of debris from 28 Santa Barbara County beaches and creeks! Volunteers also saved over 500 bags by bringing their own buckets or reusing bags! Bringing buckets and reusable gloves, such as gardening gloves, is also encouraged to help make this the cleanest greenest Coastal Cleanup Day yet.
