San Diego River Cleanup

August 27, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT


San Diego River Cleanup

Recycle For Veterans invites everyone to join them in a river clean up with local veterans!


Come Join Your Local Veterans for a cleanup!

Recycle For Veterans x The San Diego River Foundation collaborative event

Due to unpredictable terrain and route changes within the river, the address of the meetup point will be displayed within 48 hours of the date of the cleanup.

We will supply bags, gloves, buckets, grabbers, and hand sanitizer.

Please feel free to bring your own bucket, bag, or trash grabber!

Please take a look at our Gear List below to ensure you are properly prepared and equipped.

We strongly discourage the use of any single-use plastic at our cleanups.


Schedule & What To Expect:

9:00am – 9:30am | Check-In & Morning Brief

We will all gather by the designated meet-up point to go over all the information and route details before we kick-off. We will be handing out the buckets and bags as well.


9:30am – 10:45am | Service The Area

We will kick off the cleanup by following the designated route and servicing the area for trash, recyclables, and debris. (Around 1-3 miles of rough terrain)


11:30am – 12pm | Collect Trash & Sort

After we service the area we then head back and weigh the collected trash. From there we dump it out onto a tarp and sort through the materials looking for the items, such as glass, plastics, bottle caps, or cigarette butts so they are to be disposed of properly.


12pm | Education Brief & Closing Remarks

During the separation process, our Team Leader and supporting Eco Warriors will close out the event by educating the volunteers on conservation, sustainability, and environmentalism.
