Napa County Coastal Cleanup

 

PROTECT YOUR HAPPY PLACE!


Napa County Coastal Cleanup
September 18, 2021
9am-12pm

VOLUNTEERS are needed to clean up Napa County’s streets & creeks!

COASTAL CLEANUP DAY is a statewide and international effort to clean trash and debris from beaches, bays, creeks, rivers, and lakes.

In 2020, 141 residents did their own Coastal Cleanup Day, removing 632 pounds of trash and recycling from Napa’s waterways.

That’s a little short of the 561 volunteers we had in 2019, so this year we’re working to safely bring more of you to multiple sites throughout Napa County.

We have locations stretching from Calistoga and Berryessa all the way down the valley into American Canyon.

Come out and help us keep Napa clean!

Reduce plastic bag waste—bring your own bucket, box, or bin for litter collection. If you have reusable gloves and a trash grabber, bring those, too!

All ages are welcome to participate.


Please register in advance.

Recycle Old Tires – It’s Free!

Get rid of those illegal, unhealthy and unsightly piles of tires today.

NRWS has partnered with the City and County of Napa to provide a FREE waste tire amnesty period August 1–30, 2021 for NRWS customers.

You can help to make sure these tires are recycled properly instead of becoming breeding grounds for mosquitoes or fire hazards.

Together we can make a difference! The coupon authorizes the transportation of up to 19 tires for free recycling. The regular recycling price for tires 22” or less in rim size diameter is $5 per tire.

PLEASE NOTE: All passenger and light truck tires 22” or less in rim size diameter will be accepted. Tires can remain on the metal rims.

LIMIT ONE COUPON PER TRIP!

REMEMBER: You must comply with the law when hauling waste tires. With this coupon in your possession, you may haul and recycle no more than 19 tires. This offer is available to residential and non tire-dealer commercial customers only during the amnesty period of August 1-30, 2021.

To get a coupon, contact NRWS/NCRWS at (707) 255-5200.

PLEASE NOTE: City coupons are only good for the month of August, County coupons are good all year!
