Carver Tract Residents Invited to Join in Neighborhood Clean-Up
CARVER TRACT – Supervisor V. Manuel Perez is calling on neighbors to get involved in a community wide clean-up of Carver Tract set for Saturday, Feb. 24.
The clean-up event will consist of curbside trash pick-up and debris removal throughout Carver Tract. The neighborhood, with approximately 200 homes, is an unincorporated Riverside County island between the cities of Indio and Coachella.
Tomorrow morning, Feb. 10, Supervisor Perez and his staff will go door-to-door to meet community members and distribute flyers on the clean-up and community resources.
“Carver Tract is a small, older neighborhood in need of revitalization and this community clean up will make an immediate impact,” said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. “Beyond this event, my focus is to engage residents to be involved and work toward long-term improvements to the area. By working together, we can create lasting change. Let’s take pride in the community and beautify Carver Tract.”
The Great Carver Tract Community Clean-Up will be held the morning of Saturday, Feb. 24.
Residents will have the opportunity to leave their bulky trash items on the curb for pick-up by Burrtec and Department of Waste Resources at no charge to them. Items must be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. Items that will be accepted include furniture, unwanted household items, large appliances, bundled tree limbs and branches, electronic waste, and small appliances. Industrial, business and hazardous waste will NOT be accepted.
On the day of the clean-up, volunteers will remove debris they find throughout the residential area. Participants will include Supervisor Perez and staff, several teams of youth programs participating in Supervisor Perez’s C.L.E.A.N. (Community Leaders Enhancing Area Neighborhoods) Youth Force program, volunteers from Coachella Valley Rescue Mission and any community members who want to volunteer.
The clean-up, organized by Supervisor Perez, is made possible by Riverside County’s Economic Development Agency, Housing Authority, Code Enforcement and Department of Waste Resources, Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, and community members.
Residents needing assistance with large appliances or household items they cannot bring to the curb themselves can contact Grace Escobar at 760-863-2586.
