Litter Bugs Me, Annual Roadside Clean Up in West Marin

Join us for the annual Litter Bugs Me roadside clean up efforts in West Marin the week of September 10th - 15th, 2018

Let’s face it our roadways get trashed! As an unincorporated gateway community to three national parks, three state parks, open space, and agricultural lands, as well as a residential community, West Marin is a hot spot for Bay Area tourism. While tourism helps support the local economy, we also notice we get a lot of trash piling up along the roadsides after the busy summer tourist season. In an effort to clean up the watershed before the winter rains, we are encouraging groups to join as Team Up to Clean Up Crews (Sept. 10th-14th), or join EAC for our roadside clean up (Sat., Sept.15). The combined community clean up helps support safer wildlife corridors, coastal and riparian zones, recreational opportunities, and get our community outside to protect what we love about West Marin. 


We are inviting businesses, clubs, village associations, and nonprofits to join us as a Team Up to Clean Up Crew by adopting one or more roadsides in one of the coastal communities from Dillon to Muir beaches, where their crew will pick up trash throughout the week of September 10th-14th.

Crews and clean ups are independently coordinated, but are encouraged to contact EAC staff with their planned location, time and date of their roadside clean up so we don’t have any overlap. On the day of your clean up, take photos, weigh or estimate your trash haul, and send us your litter and volunteer statistics and photos to share with the community.

Registered crews can also RSVP to our thank you BBQ on Saturday, September 15th at Marconi Historic State Park following our Coastal Clean Up efforts. Space limited. 

Learn more about how to get involved below, and contact us with questions or to register as crew at or call (415) 663.9312.
