On December 17th and 18th the Paso Robles Police Department CAT team facilitated a trash cleanup in the Salinas Riverbed. A local company was contracted and removed 14,700 pounds of trash from the southwest end of the riverbed at a cost of $8,400.00. Crews will again be in the riverbed this week cleaning the southeast end of the riverbed. This is an ongoing process until the rains limit our access into the riverbed.
