(Victorville)–The City of Victorville, in cooperation with the Victorville Chamber of Commerce, is again organizing a city-wide Community Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 14. Volunteers who help collect litter will receive a free t-shirt and discount coupons for lunch at participating Victorville restaurants.
Interested residents should fill out a volunteer registration/waiver form and send it back to the City of Victorville Solid Waste Division by April 2 to receive a t-shirt. Registration forms are available on the City of Victorville website at www.ci.victorville.ca.us (Quick Link: Community Cleanup). Volunteers can also pick up registration/waiver forms at City Hall, 14343 Civic Drive. City Hall is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Individuals are encouraged to join with friends, family, and community groups to create teams to participate.
The Victorville Community Cleanup Day is a semi-annual event, held each October and April. The event began in October 2007. Since then, more than 4,000 volunteers have worked together to collect over 37 tons of litter from Victorville roadsides. Last October, over 350 people volunteered to help pick up litter from 25 different locations in the City of Victorville, collecting almost 2 tons of litter during the event. The goal for this April’s event is to recruit over 400 volunteers to help out.
For more information or to request a waiver by mail, potential volunteers and sponsors should call the City of Victorville at 760-955-4817.
