Asking residents for help in getting and keeping trash out of local waterways

PASO ROBLES, CA, May 31, 2022 – The City of Paso Robles is participating in a county-wide initiative to help decrease the amount of trash, especially plastic, that makes its way into our waterways and effects water quality on the Central Coast and in Paso Robles. 

The campaign is a joint effort between the SLO County Integrated Waste Management Authority, Central Coast Partners for Water Quality, the County of San Luis Obispo and all of the cities all within SLO County. The stated goals of the program are to:

  • Reduce the overall amount and size of trash captured in drain inlet clean outs to achieve a year-over-year reduction of 10% annually over 10 years.
  • Reduce the amount of most littered items: cigarette butts, disposable utensils.
  • Decrease the level of on-land visual trash assessment results by 10% each year over a five-year period. OVTA levels: Very Littered, Littered, Slightly Littered, Not Littered.

From the program’s website: “Our waterways are a source of pride and joy for our communities and visitors alike. We know litter anywhere in our regions impacts our water quality - from creeks and rivers to bays and oceans. The best way to keep the central coast pristine is to prevent litter from ruining our stunning scenery in the first place.”

Paso Robles Stormwater Manager, David LaCaro states, “Paso Robles is a beautiful place filled with many critical natural resources, such as local waterways and rolling hills filled with oaks.  In order for us to maintain its beauty, we must continue to be good stewards of the land.  The city sees an increase in population, we also experience an increase in trash and litter.  As such, the city provides various volunteer opportunities for community action and participation in the City’s beautification. Residents who would like to participate can pick up trash on their own, adopt-a-street or volunteer for Salinas Riverwalk Cleanup days with Earth Shine.”
