10 Steps to Becoming A Yuba River Cleanup Volunteer

To protect our river and our community whilst being COVID safe, this year the Yuba River Cleanup will have a new format. Rather than one day of fun, the 2020 Yuba River Cleanup will be held across 12 days, allowing our community to volunteer in small groups while keeping social-distancing.

Follow these 10 Steps to becoming a Cleanup Volunteer in 2020

STEP 1:  Visit yubarivercleanup.org

STEP 2:  Download and read your Yuba River Cleanup Guide.

STEP 3:  Review the site map of Cleanup locations and descriptions.

STEP 4:  Register to volunteer at a Cleanup Site or register your Neighborhood Cleanup through our volunteer portal. You will receive a reminder email of your volunteer shift and location a few days before the Cleanup.  

STEP 5:  Order your Cleanup T-shirt. Check your email for a registration confirmation that includes a VOLUNTEER DISCOUNT CODE for your Cleanup t-shirt. 

STEP 6:  Gather your Cleanup supplies, trash bags, gloves, sunscreen, water bottle, and face mask.  See a complete Cleanup checklist in the Cleanup Guide. 

STEP 7:  Volunteers can pick up extra Cleanup supplies and their 2020 Cleanup t-shirt at the SYRCL’s Yuba River Cleanup Drive-Thru before heading out to pick up trash. The Cleanup Drive-Thru will be located across the street from 313 Railroad Ave. in Nevada City. 

STEP 8:  Pick up as much trash as you can carry, track what you are collecting with a Cleanup data card (located inside Yuba River Cleanup Guide), estimate or weigh your findings. Track any left trash still needing removed for the next volunteer shift.

STEP 9:  Dispose of garbage and recycling in your home bins or drop off at SYRCL office during drive-through hours.

Monday – Friday: 8:30am – 1:30pm
Saturday – Sunday: 8:30am – 5:30pm 

STEP 10: Complete a trash tally report and submit your entry for the Trash or Treasure Contest. Report additional trash needing removal to SYRCL along with any other outstanding notes about your site.
