Community Clean-Up Returns to Carver Tract Saturday
CARVER TRACT – Last year, Supervisor V. Manuel Perez organized a community clean-up of Carver Tract, the first in recent memory, if ever, for the small “county island” between the cities of Indio and Coachella. On Saturday, the clean-up returns to the area, providing an opportunity for Carver Tract residents to dispose of their bulky waste for free and keep the community clean.
From 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 23, residents can drop their items off at Van Buren Elementary School, 47-733 Van Buren St., Indio.
Acceptable bulky items include tires – up to nine per trip, furniture, large appliances, bundled tree limbs and branches, electronic waste and small appliances.
Hazardous materials will NOT be accepted, including batteries, pool chemicals, transmission and brake fluids, herbicides, fertilizers, gasoline, motor parts, fluorescent light bulbs, paint, antifreeze, engines, motor oil, tub and tile cleaners and bleach.
Up to 15 gallons, or 125 pounds, of the above household hazardous waste items can be taken for free to the Waste Resources Department’s permanent collection site in Palm Springs, 1100 Vella Rd. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays, and at temporary sites throughout the year. More information is available at www.rcwaste.org or by calling 951-486-3200.
The Carver Tract Community Clean-Up is hosted by the Riverside County Department of Waste Resources and Burrtec Waste & Recycling Services, with the support of Supervisor V. Manuel Perez.
