The backroads around dense urban areas are the targets of a huge amount of dumping.

To date, we’ve primarily focused on Wildcat road, especially the stretch from Inspiration Point to San Pablo Dam Road.

We are looking for people with CLIMBING EXPERIENCE to help retrieve trash from easy Class-4 slopes.

The Wildcat section is led by Jill McIntire. We are grateful for support from EBMUD Watershed and Recreation Dept for bags, and the Contra Costa County Public Works Department for trash pickup.

This project focuses on the East Bay Ridge Roads: Grizzly Peak, Skyline, and Redwood. We have completed a first cleaning across 3.5 miles of Grizzly Peak from Centennial to Marlborough Terrace and we are working on extending our dataset along Skyline Blvd. and Redwood Road.

We removed over 450 bags of trash. This section needs additional roped work to get trash down steepish slopes.

To change a culture of trashing along Grizzly we organized 40 highly visible cleanups, and installed almost 100 signs. We are pleased to report that the amount of new trash along Grizzly has fallen dramatically.

We are looking for people with CLIMBING EXPERIENCE to help retrieve trash from easy Class-4 slopes.
