Quarterly Neighborhood Cleanup - Ranch Del Oro Park 

Join Neighborhood Services, Code Enforcement, and the Green Oceanside Team to clean up our neighborhood and  Keep Oceanside BEAUTIFUL!  Here are two ways to get involved!

  • Household Cleanup: Do you have donatable items, materials beyond reuse and repair, or even illegally dumped junk at home or in your neighborhood? Bring them to a Quarterly Neighborhood Cleanup!
    • Local reuse organizations will be on site to receive gently used, donatable items. Check out Habitat for Humanity's ReStore Donation Guidelines!
    • Recycling services will be available for e-waste (household appliances, printers, TVs, computers, etc., that often have cords or batteries)
    • Multiple landfill dumpsters will be available for furniture, mattresses, barbeques, home goods, and other items beyond reuse or repair

    Please keep in mind – no household hazardous waste (paint, chemicals, solvents, oil, pesticides, and other household chemicals) will be accepted, BUT you can always schedule a household hazardous waste drop off appointment with Waste Management at (760) 439-2824. 

  • Volunteers Wanted: Help clean the community. On the day of the event, check in at the Green Oceanside booth with friends and family! Pick up gloves, bags, and other cleanup supplies, then walk through the local neighborhood, park, or surrounding area to help remove litter. Don’t forget to sign your liability waiver for these events!
