Origins of the Annual Yuba River Cleanup
Keeping the Yuba clean since 1997
Inspired by California Coastal Cleanup Day, SYRCL began the annual Yuba River Cleanup with the help of our regional cohort, The Great Sierra River Cleanup.
Over time, the annual Yuba River Cleanup has become a beloved tradition that unites the community in a shared goal. Year after year, enthusiastic volunteers roll up their sleeves, don their gloves, and embark on a mission to rid the river of the trash and debris that has accumulated throughout the Yuba River watershed each year.
Since its inception, the annual Yuba River Cleanup has removed more than 135 tons of garbage and recycling from the river.
