The Fall Challenge Starts Now!


We are excited to announce our Cleaner Contra Costa Fall Challenge! Complete as many actions as possible to earn points for a chance to win prizes and be recognized for your efforts. The Challenge starts September 23, 2019 and goes until March 19, 2020!

Compete as an individual!  The first 100 individuals to reach 5,000 points will receive a Tread Lightly Toolkit, which includes a reusable bamboo utensil set, a reusable stainless steel straw, and more! 


Compete as part of a Clean Team! The top team in each region East, Central, and West Contra Costa County will be recognized by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors  and each team member* will receive a Tread Lightly Toolkit.  

Starting a Clean Team:

  • Anyone can be a Clean Team ambassador and form a team of up to 10 friends. Teams work together to earn points by taking sustainable actions through the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge platform.
  • Sign up to the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge platform in order to start a team.
  • Contact if you have any questions.
