IMPERIAL — Imperial residents had the opportunity to get rid of a lot of junk Friday and Saturday.
Valley Environmental Services in conjunction with the city of Imperial organized a trash pickup of bulk items not normally picked up by the regular trash collection.
Resident Faith Jimenez said, "I saw it in the newspaper, I think it's great. I get to get rid of all my junk."
"I think it's a good way to get the place cleaned up," said Jason Wilson.
Appliances such as hot water heaters, scrap metal and old sofas lined the streets.
One vehicle picked up the metal materials onto a flatbed while another crushed wood material and furniture much like a trash compactor.
