Residents and officials across the Bay Area volunteered their time and energy on Sept. 15 for the 34th annual Coastal Cleanup Day, the largest statewide and international effort to clean trash and debris from beaches, bays, creeks, rivers and lakes.

In Livermore, volunteers of all ages turned out to remove trash and debris from eight Livermore creek sites. Along the 5.92 miles of Livermore waterways, 257 volunteers collected a total of 2,112 gallons of trash and 264 gallons of recyclables.

In Dublin, 153 volunteers collected 5.5 cubic yards of trash and recyclables from five creek locations.
