Bayview Neighborhood Walk and Trash Pick-up

Join us on July 24th in front of the Bayview Opera House (4705 3rd Street), from 8-10am for a neighborhood walk and trash pick-up. We will begin with free breakfast!

While it might not be the first thing you think of when you think of whole body care, walking is good for your body, being in community to do something good is great for the psyche and cleaning up the neighborhood is great for everyone who is able to enjoy the natural beauty that is all around them.

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather, walking and for trash pick-up. Closed-toed shoes are recommended.

We'll provide the trash pick up supplies and the fun. Bring your family, friends and any stranger you may pass along the way who wants to help out. SF Refresh strives to be a zero waste event, so please try not to bring things with you to the event that will become trash. Just because we pick it up and it gets taken away by a truck, doesn't me that it goes away. The picture above is the amount of trash collected in San Francisco in just one day.

A big thank you to the San Francisco Department of Public Works (DPW) who will be lending us all the supplies and taking the trash away at the end of the event!

* Learn how you can help take care of litter in your neighborhood every day.
