apple-valley20By Staff Reports

(Apple Valley)– If one small act of kindness can create a positive ripple throughout the universe, then you can pick up trash in Apple Valley and save the world!

Join us Saturday, April 5 for Community Clean Up Day from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Community service organizations, schools, churches, clubs and individual volunteers are invited to participate in this free event. Teams are provided with trash bags and gloves and assigned an area to clean. In return, participants get event T-shirts and lunch while supplies last. Volunteers must sign up in advance to get supplies, assignments and fill out a liability waiver. To help make a difference in the Town of Apple Valley call Special Events at (760) 240-7000 x 7071.

The twice annual Clean Up Days are made possible with the help of Burrtec, Sparklett’s, Splattered Ink, Take Pride in America, Keep California Beautiful and Wal-Mart. Last year, more than 40 tons of trash and almost 3 tons of metal were collected.

Bulky household items such as mattresses, appliances, and furniture may be dropped off free of charge at the collection bins on the corner of Navajo and Pah-ute between 9 a.m. and noon.  No tires, televisions, computer monitors or other hazardous materials will be accepted.  Proof of Apple Valley residency is required.

Although San Bernardino County is no longer hosting free dump day in conjunction with this event, bulky household items such as mattresses, appliances, and furniture may be dropped off free of charge at the collection bins on the corner of Navajo and Pah-ute between 9 a.m. and noon.  No tires, televisions, computer monitors or other hazardous materials will be accepted.  Proof of Apple Valley residency is required. The Town also accepts household hazardous waste every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility at 13450 Nomwaket Road between Powhatan and Ottawa roads.
