SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif. (KION-TV) - Dozens of events taking place to help eliminate litter and illegal dumping throughout the county. The Santa Cruz county board of supervisors has endorsed May 11th as the first annual Santa Cruz County cleanup day.

One of the cleanups took place near Pajaro Valley high school today. About 25 students and community volunteers came out

“This is going to be a clean environment for everyone, it's going to prevent all the trash from ending up into our wetlands and slues which ultimately could end up in the ocean, junior at Pajaro Valley High School Alberto Carrillo said.

This cleanup was also hosted by Watsonville Wetlands watch which works to restore and protect wetlands in the Pajaro Valley.

Cleanup events in unincorporated parts of Santa Cruz County were made possible in part through Measure C, single-use funds.
