PBTC Weed & Trash Cleanups

As the City of San Diego falls behind on weed abatement and trash cleanup, our all-volunteer PBTC 501(c)(3) is stepping up to get it done ourselves. We’ve cleaned overgrown traffic medians and picked up litter in high-visibility areas. See photos below of recent projects including medians along Garnet Avenue near Rose Creek, the Garnet/Balboa split, both ends of Mission Bay Drive near the I-5 entrances and Soledad Mountain Road.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our August 14, 2021 cleanup!

We’d love to have you participate in future events. To be notified of events, please sign up below.

    We recommend volunteers bring gardening gloves, sunscreen, visors or hats, and drinking water. We will have tools, but if you can bring pruners or loppers from home, this would ensure that we have enough tools for everyone.

    Questions? Please call Ron Walker at (619) 977-4055.

    Would you please consider donating to help defray the cost of equipment and supplies? (Donations are tax-deductible.)

    Previous Events

    Shown below are PBTC board members Brian White, Susan Crowers, Ron Walker, and Charlie Nieto getting after those weeds. There’s a LOT more to do, so please volunteer for our weed removal task force!


    Below are some before-and-after photos of PBTC weed abatement efforts. What a difference! But the job is far from done, so we hope you’ll volunteer to help.
