Goleta West Sanitary District has funded Isla Vista Recreation & Parks District’s Adopt-a-Block program since 1996. The successful partnership between the two local agencies, the Isla Vista business community and hundreds of volunteers has resulted in over 1.3 million pounds of trash being picked up by hand from crowded county streets. Further efforts include graffiti abatement and environmental education. For more information, visit the IVRPD website.
