CHICO, Calif. – A volunteer effort to clean trash and debris from Chico area waterways resulted in five trailers full of refuse being hauled away. Volunteers targeted illegal campsites along the Lindo Channel.

Members of the group, Chico Community Watch, along with the Chico Police Department, Park Rangers and help from various community members, including Chico City Councilman Scott Huber, spent part of Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019, performing the cleanup.
The group hauled off garbage carts, bicycles, couches and a variety of other types of debris.

Chico Community Watch organizer Dan Bringolf believes if volunteers did not regularly focus on areas around Lindo Channel, the region would be what he describes as ‘awful.’

He said he has lived in Chico 45 years and was motivated to start the volunteer group three years ago, after seeing trash building-up around the city.

In addition to Chico Community Watch, the city’s volunteer program, PAL’s, meet each Friday to target city parks and greenways, with the public encouraged to get involved.
