(Victorville)– Community support and enthusiasm, combined with a gorgeous day, made for a hugely successful Victorville Community Cleanup Day on October 26. Over 700 volunteers collected 8.72 tons of litter and other trash during the event.
The litter and trash filled six large, construction sized “roll-off” trash containers, the equivalency of filling 2 ½ “semi” tractor-trailers. 26 Teams comprised of area schools, churches, club and service organizations, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, homeowner associations, businesses, non-profits, families, friends, neighbors, and individuals fanned out around specific areas in Victorville.
The Victorville Community Cleanup Day is a semi-annual event, held each October and April. The first Victorville Cleanup Day was held in October 2007. Since then, more than 6,500 volunteers have worked together to collect over 68 tons of litter from Victorville roadsides. Photos of the event will be posted on the City of Victorville’s website at www.Victorvilleca.gov (Quick Link: Community Cleanup) by the end of the month.
