(Victorville)– On Saturday, Mar. 4, the City of Victorville and Victorville Disposal are sponsoring a Free Neighborhood Cleanup/Free Dump Day event to make it easy for City residents to clean up their yards and neighborhoods. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will take place in the parking lot of the former Wal-Mart, 15272 Bear Valley Rd., located at the corner Bear Valley Road and Balsam Avenue. Residents should enter the location from Balsam Avenue, and follow the signs to the event.
Residents can dispose of garden trimmings, broken fences, old furniture, mattresses, appliances, scrap metal, cardboard boxes, extra trash, and other debris free of charge during the event. No tires, TVs, computers, hazardous waste, paint, oil, compressed gas cylinders, dirt, or asbestos materials will be accepted at this event.
The Neighborhood Cleanup/Free Dump Day is for City of Victorville residents only, and proof of current City of Victorville residency such as a current water bill or other utility bill will be required. No business waste materials or commercial vehicles will be accepted.
Residents who have mattresses, TVs, computers, tires, scrap metal, e-waste, and/or cardboard are encouraged to use the City of Victorville Recycling Drop-off Center to dispose of these items, instead of the Free Dump event. The Recycling Drop-off Center is located at 15164 Anacapa Rd., between Amargosa and Borego. It is open every Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Residents who have used motor oil, paint, batteries, or other hazardous materials can drop them off for free at the City of Victorville’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center (HHWCC), located on Loves Lane, off of Desert Knolls Drive, behind the County Fairgrounds. The HHWCC is open Wednesdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
