Tarp Your Load
We are pleased to announce the third Tarp Your Load event which will take place on Thursday, October 27th from 11:00 - 3:30 at the
Marin Resource and Recovery Center.
At our last two events, we disseminated educational information and gave away over 300 tarps to drivers of uncovered trucks. The events were so successful, that MCSTOPPP (Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program) has adopted the Tarp Your Load initiative and appointed Angela Clapp to manage future events. We will continue to work closely with Angela and MCSTOPPP in an effort rid our highways of debris through prevention programs.
A special thank you to Jackson's Hardware and MCSTOPPP for providing tarps, and to McDonald's Strawberry Village, Goodman's Building Supply, Marin Builders Association and Sagent Marketing for their contributions.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are delighted to announce that we are embarking on a new endeavor that goes hand in hand with our covered load project
Thanks to a generous donation earmarked for highway beautification, we are in the beginning stages of creating a plan to improve the look of our highway. Because of the strict guidelines of Caltrans, the plan is to start with the frontage road side of the fence line. The 101 is the "gateway" to all our communities. It is the first impression of visitors, relocating residents and visitors. And it is our "Main Street". There is a lot of room for improvement utilizing hardscape and landscape with water wise plants.
If you have any talents in the area of landscape design or would like to contribute in any way, please do not hesitate. We will need to generate additional funding for this project.
