Adopt-A-Creek Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to help clean trash and debris from four Livermore creek sites on Tri-Valley Creeks to Bay Clean-up. The event, scheduled for 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014, is a part of Coastal Cleanup Day, the largest statewide and international effort to clean trash and debris from beaches, bays, creeks, rivers, and lakes. Due to limited space, it is recommended that volunteers pre-register and obtain a waiver form by contacting the site coordinator for the cleanup site of their choice. Volunteers under 13 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. Additional information is available at www.trivalleycreeks.org/events/creeks-to-bay-cleanup/.

Bring Your Own Bag!

Bag It FlyerBeginning January 1, 2013, stores in Alameda County which sell packaged foods – including most grocery stores, minimarts, convenience stores, liquor stores, and pharmacies – will no longer provide customers with single-use plastic bags upon checkout. Bags made of recycled paper or reusable bags will be available for a minimum price of 10 cents per bag. Consumers may bring from home any type of bags they wish and are strongly encouraged to do so. Small plastics bags used to protect and transport produce, bulk food, or meat from within a store to the checkout or cash register will still be available free of charge.

Click here for the full Press Release. For more information, call StopWaste, the Alameda County Waste Management Authority at 510-891-6500 or go to www.ReusableBagsAC.org.

The City of Livermore has taken Styrofoam off the menu!

As of July 1, 2011, the City of Livermore's Ordinance banning Styrofoam® 'to-go' containers for foodservice businesses officially takes effect. By switching to recyclable and compostable take-out alternatives, Livermore's businesses will be reducing both litter and water pollution. The City applauds foodservice businesses that have already discontinued the use of Styrofoam. Wondering how you too can make the switch? Take a look at the information below, email us, or call 925-960-8015.
