Town Cleanup Day scheduled for June 11
Complimentary orange trash bags are available for the collection of trash – not household waste or pine cones/needles- (maximum 5 at one-time) from the following locations: Stellar Brew & Natural Deli, Looney Bean, Old NY Deli & Bagel, Mammoth Business Essentials, RE/MAX of Mammoth, Snowcreek Athletic Club, Town Offices, the Mammoth Lakes California Welcome Center, Mammoth Lakes Tourism Office, and the Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station located at 59 Commerce Drive.
Grab a bag now and get started. Then, on June 11 starting at 8 a.m., grab some more bags and continue cleaning your street, neighborhood and town. At noon, head to Mammoth Creek Park for a complimentary community picnic.
“We would like to thank our community in advance for their commitment to grab a bag, roll up their sleeves and clean up our fabulous town. Just think how beautiful Mammoth Lakes would look if everyone filled up a bag of trash!” stated Brown.
From Monday, June 13 through Wednesday, June 15, Mammoth Disposal will pick up the Town supplied orange trash bags free of charge for private property owners. Orange bags need to be available for collection no later than Sunday evening, June 12.
There will be no collection of loose or bulky items, paint, or oil (refrigerators, appliances, mattresses etc.) from private properties on Saturday, June 11. The Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station will receive these items free of charge only on June 11 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The Town, Inyo National Forest and Mammoth Lakes Fire Department encourage the recycling of materials, including pine needles, pine cones and tree limbs less than 12” in diameter. Residents are able to bring these materials to the Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station free of charge on Saturday, June 11 for chipping between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Neighborhood volunteers are needed to coordinate the 10 designated Town clean- up areas. If you are able to volunteer (there can be more than one volunteer for each area), or would like to volunteer your group or organization to clean-up our town either before or during Town Clean-Up Day, please contact Recreation Supervisor John Connolly at 760.934.8989 ext. 234 or firstname.lastname@example.org. –Press Release/LK
