Apple Valley – Making Apple Valley a "Better way of Life" can be as simple as donating one morning to help pick up trash in the community.

Join volunteers Saturday, October 20 for the semi-annual Community Clean Up event 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. Our twice annual Clean Up Days are made possible with the help of Burrtec, Sparklett’s, Splattered Ink, Take Pride in America and Keep California Beautiful.

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.  The Town 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 in Apple Valley between Powhatan and Ottawa roads. For more information on recycling or disposing of hazardous waste, visit www.GreenAppleValley.org.
