Volunteers Needed for Aliso Viejo Clean-up Event



While “All the leaves are brown…And the sky is grey” and the rest of America is California dreamin’, we in Orange County are living that dream. It is filled with the water, the sun, the sand and especially acres of beautiful trails & creeks. But, volunteers and vigilance are needed to keep them beautiful.

At OC Junk Hauling, we know how important it is to preserve natural resources, which is why we strive to recycle over 85% of our pickups.
Our environmentally friendly practices focus on salvaging unwanted items and materials that can be reused by someone else. To that end, we make a concerted effort to sort through all collected unwanted items for what can be donated, recycled or upcycled.

We are extremely eco-friendly and take great pride in creating a clean and environmentally friendly California.

Therefore, we are particularly interested in sharing with you the news about the upcoming annual Aliso Viejo Trails and Creek Clean-up event set for 8-11 a.m. on Saturday, September 15! Approximately 3.5 miles of trails within Aliso and Wood Canyon Park are the target area for volunteers to clean up trash and debris that has built up since last year’s clean up.

Moy Yahya, Environmental Programs Manager for the City of Aliso Viejo tells us this project first began in 2006.

Yahya shared with us, “City of Aliso Viejo encourages residents and businesses to participate in this event and to do their part in keeping local trails and the creeks clean so we all can enjoy better and beautiful and accessible trails and natural habitat areas.”

This would also be an excellent opportunity for teens looking to earn additional volunteer hours.

Volunteers should come prepared with appropriate attire and closed-toed shoes or hiking boots. Gardening or work gloves would be advisable as you most likely will be pushing thicket, brush and bushes to get to the target debris.

It also wouldn’t hurt to bring sunscreen and a hat.

Free refreshments will be provided to the volunteers.

Volunteers will meet at the Aliso Viejo Ranch, 100 Park Avenue. On-site registration will be held the day of the clean up. A required liability waiver also will need to be completed by each volunteer or guardian.

For additional info and to sign up, contact Moy Yahya at  myahya@cityofalisoviejo.com or call 949-425-2538.
