COMPTON, CALIFORNIA – On Saturday, February 9th, DeMenno/Kerdoon, California’s leading recycler of used oil and antifreeze, is partnering with the City of Compton and Compton Unified School District to clean-up a major section of the Compton Creek and bike trail from Alondra Boulevard to Compton Boulevard. Including students from Compton High School’s Recycling Club and other nearby schools, volunteers will remove trash, debris and weeds alongside the Compton Creek to beautify the area and increase safety for bike trail users.
What:       Compton Creek Clean-Up Event. Media, community leaders and volunteers are welcome to attend the clean-up effort. Good photo opportunities.
 
When:      Saturday, February 9th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
 
Where:     Compton Creek and bike trail section from Alondra Boulevard to Compton Boulevard. Parking is available at 417 W. Alondra Boulevard.
The Compton City Council has made the Compton Creek a priority. To supplement the efforts of City Councilwoman Yvonne Arceneaux and other City leaders, they have begun reaching out to community-minded businesses like DeMenno/Kerdoon to help them beautify and maintain the creek.
Compton Unified School Board President Micah Ali adds, “Today’s students believe our environment is precious and must be preserved for the benefit of future generations. Compton High School and our entire district are committed to partner with City and corporate leaders to invest time to clean-up and maintain the Compton Creek.”
“As an environmental business in the community, DeMenno/Kerdoon wants to roll up its sleeves to help clean-up the Compton Creek and bike trail. We’re making a commitment to launch a new Adopt-the-Creek program in Compton, and invite other corporate and organizational leaders to join us,” says Jim Ennis, DeMenno/Kerdoon’s Chief Operating Officer.
In addition to the intrinsic reward of feeling good about helping beautify their community, volunteers at the clean-up will receive a breakfast snack, festive taco lunch and t-shirt for their participation.
The Compton Creek Mosquito Abatement District and Water Replenishment District of Southern California are also co-sponsoring the Compton Creek Clean-Up event.
