Annual Citywide Creek Clean-Up


On Saturday, September 15th and Sunday, September 16th, the City of San Carlos will hold its annual Creek Cleanup.  The purpose of the event is to invite all residents to play an active role in preserving and maintaining our creek and stream water-ways. 

The City of San Carlos has three main creeks which run adjacent to private properties and contribute to the aesthetic beauty of the City:  Cordilleras Creek, Pulgas Creek and Brittan Creek. These creeks also play an important role in nature, as they provide a very delicate natural habitat to many animals and plants.  Join the effort to keep our natural waterways clean and free of debris!   

On Monday, September 17th, City Staff will pick up all creek cleanup debris bags outside of creek-side residences.  All bags must be put at curbside no later than 8:00 a.m. on Monday morning.  Please call (650) 802-4140 to be placed on the pick up list.  Please be sure to leave your name and address.
