About the Event

To get there Drive West on University Ave. over the freeway overpass, and take a Left onto Frontage Rd. Then take an immediate Right into the parking lot behind the Seabreeze Cafe. Park away from the Cafe itself so we don't take their parking. 

We will be cleaning the NW University encampment this time around.  This will be a 'Dash for Trash' where we focus on removing as much of the bulk trash as we can. Caltrans has announced plans for monthly trash removal in this area, so this will be our last opportunity before January. Caltrans is scheduled to remove all the University trash piles on the Western side of the freeway Dec 10th and 11th.

Hazards

Speeding Cars. Always face traffic when working along roads. STAY OFF HIGHWAY & OFFRAMP PAVEMENT. The University / Frontage Intersection in particular can be confusing and potentially hazardous.

Rough Terrain. Know your limits and trust yourself; never go where you don't feel comfortable.

Needles. Never put needles in trash, instead put sharp side first, into sharps containers. Wear sturdy footware.
