Donor Spotlight

Once again, Republic Services, a local trash hauling company, has stepped up to support the Creek to Bay Cleanup in a big way. They’ll be providing more than 50 dumpsters all over San Diego to collect trash picked up by volunteers on April 25th. Last year, Republic provided ILACSD with a total of 117 dumpsters that were used for Creek to Bay, Coastal Cleanup Day and other events throughout the year. Those dumpsters collected almost 150 tons of trash, which they disposed of at no cost to us! Thanks, Republic for all that you do to keep SD clean!
