Last year, more than 900 volunteers turned out for the first event, and 11,740 pounds of trash were collected and deposited in Allied Waste dumpsters located at local schools. A free volunteer thank-you lunch will be served following the April 23 event at Contra Loma Regional Park. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to give back to their community.
