Solid Waste Cleanup Projects
Oakland Estuary Cleanup
CalRecycle and the U.S. EPA, in cooperation with other local, state, and federal agencies, have embarked on a multimillion-dollar cleanup of the Oakland Estuary. Nearly 40 abandoned and sunken vessels, marine debris, and other navigational hazards are being removed from numerous locations along the waterway, along with toxic materials such PCBs, heavy metals and asbestos. A media boat tour of the estuary to view the cleanup activities will be held Oct. 17.
