AB&I cleans up Elmhurst Creek for Earth Day
April 25, 2019
AB&I celebrated Earth Day this year by cleaning Elmhurst Creek located behind the AB&I property adjacent to the railroad tracks. Twenty AB&I volunteers joined Monica Perez and the environmental team to collect 30 bags of plastic and other trash as well as 50 aerosol cans, that would otherwise have ended up in the bay. The team spent a combined total of 43 hours cleaning up the creek.
AB&I adopted Elmhurst Creek as part of the City of Oakland Adopt-a-Spot program and Public Works supports their efforts by providing the tools needed to perform the cleanup.
We appreciate the AB&I team members that volunteered for this event. It was a great opportunity to give back to the Oakland community where our team members live and work.
