Hundreds of 24/680 residents turned out to lend a hand and help clean up inland waterways and coastal areas Saturday, finding everything from cigarette butts to car batteries and giving Ma Nature some relief from the impact of we humans.
Stacey Scott, an East Bay Regional Park District employee who took part in the Martinez clean up said everything from duck decoys to blankets, a mattress, bike frames and cigarette butts were found. They also found a working cell phone.
“If you can identify/provide pass code to unlock, I’d be more than happy to meet you vs. you driving to Castro Valley to pick up from our police headquarters,” she posted on the NEWS24 Facebook page. “Please message me on Facebook or leave a message at my desk phone…and I will get it on my personal phone and contact you back.”
That’s pretty nice of her. Otherwise it and other personal property found during the clean up will be turned over to the parks public safety people on Monday.
