Earth Day

Since 1999, Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) has been coordinating April Earth Day events for Castro Valley. From the early days of the Festival and 5K Fun Run to the more recent Earth Day Clean-Up and Recycles Day, it has been our pleasure to serve the community each year with these events to support the environment.

The Earth Day Clean-Up and Recycles Day event brings together between 500 and 1,000 community volunteers every year to help with projects all around Castro Valley.  Many Castro Valley schools also join the effort with staff, students, and family. Volunteers work together to beautify school campuses and clean up and enhance Castro Valley’s beautiful parks.  Earth Day events put into practice one of CVSan’s Visions Statements, to practice environmental stewardship to protect our resources.

CVSan Cancels Earth Day and Recycles Day 2020 Events

CVSan's Earth Day Clean-Up and Recycles Day events scheduled for Saturday, April 25th have been canceled due to statewide shelter-in-place orders and public health directives calling for the cancellation of large public gatherings to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The following resources are currently available for CVSan’s residents:
  • CVSan’s curbside Textile Collection Week is scheduled June 1st to June 5th. Bagged textiles set out by residents on their regular collection day, the first week of June, will be serviced by Alameda County Industries (ACI).
  • Used cooking oil can be placed at the curb in a screw-top plastic bottle that is no taller than 12 inches in height, next to the blue recycling cart for collection by ACI.
  • Shredded paper should be collected in a paper bag and can be placed in the green organics cart.
CVSan would like to thank Castro Valley schools, Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley, Pete’s ACE Hardware, Alameda County Clean Water Program, East Bay Regional Park District, Hayward Area Recreation and Park District, Alameda County Public Works Agency, and Alameda County Industries for their sponsorship and help with preparations to support the 2020 event.

We look forward to working with our partners and sponsors again for Earth Day Clean-Up and Recycles Day 2021.
