‘Clean Up El Centro' effort slated Saturday at Stark Field

April 06, 2001

In the effort to continue with the beautification of the city of El Centro, the El Centro Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau announced today that the next "Clean Up El Centro" will be Saturday.

Valley Environmental Services will be placing four large bins at one location, which will be at the Stark Field via Third Street and proceed west on Lenrey Avenue and exit onto Fourth Street upon disposing of their trash. Do not enter from Fourth Street.

The bins will be available from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. To avoid overflow of trash, the bins will be emptied throughout the day. There will be a staff member from Valley Environmental Services on site to ensure only authorized items are dumped in the trash bins.

Rubbish, furniture, white goods and green waste will be accepted at the site. The following items may be dumped in the trash bins: normal household trash, such as items you usually put in your residential cans, paper, old furniture, such as couches, mattresses, tables, chairs and cardboard and grass and tree trimmings not more than 3 feet long or 8 inches in diameter (residential only—not for commercial gardeners).

The following cannot be dumped in trash bins: no liquids, no batteries, no paint, no type of oils or lubricants, no tires and no dead animals). Cooperation of the community will enable this project to continue.

The El Centro chamber and Valley Environmental Services, in cooperation with the city of El Centro, will be placing the trash bins at this location so El Centro residents can get rid of their unwanted items and to help keep El Centro clean. Proof of residence will be required (i.e., driver's license, utility bill).

For more information call the El Centro chamber at 352-3681.
