(Apple Valley)– Community service organizations, schools, churches, clubs and individual volunteers are invited to help keep Apple Valley beautiful by participating in clean-up activities on September 21.
The Town of Apple Valley is accepting registration for Community Clean-up Day through our Parks and Recreation Department. Registered individuals and teams are provided with clean-up supplies 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.
The Code Enforcement Department will be stationed at Lion’s Park from 9 a.m. to noon to accept bulky items such as mattresses, appliances, and furniture free of charge. Household waste and up to nine used tires without rims will be accepted. Commercial dealers may not participate.
Televisions, computer monitors, or other hazardous materials will be accepted at the Town’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility at 13450 Nomwaket Road between Powhatan and Ottawa roads from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Up to nine used tires will also be accepted at this location.
The twice annual Clean-up Days are made possible with the help of Burrtec, Sparklett’s, Splattered Ink, High Desert Association of Realtors, Next Era Energy, Mojave River Watershed Group, Take Pride in America, Keep California Beautiful, High Desert Church of Apple Valley and Papa John’s Pizza.
