Neighborhood Cleanup Scheduled at Lion’s Park In 2018, the Apple Valley Code Enforcement Department collected approximately 520,000 pounds of yard waste, household trash, broken small appliances, furniture, metal and other items at six Community Clean-up events held at Lion’s Park. Previously, clean-up events were offered to address targeted neighborhoods that were identified as areas of blight.
Now, anyone in Apple Valley can participate in the clean-ups. “The response was astounding. More than a half million pounds of debris and trash were collected that could otherwise have potentially ended up in our desert,” said Code Enforcement Manager Guy Eisenbrey. “By opening them up Town-wide, we have seen a reduction of illegal dumping in our area. We would like to see this decline in dumping cases continue its downward trend.”
Apple Valley Code Enforcement has scheduled six Neighborhood Clean-ups for 2019 on the following dates: March 9 May 18 October 19 November 9 December 14 Items will be accepted free of charge at Lion’s Park on South Outer Highway 18 just east of Dale Evans Parkway from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until the bins have exceeded their capacity. The Neighborhood Clean-ups are scheduled in addition to Community Clean-up Day Events offered through the Parks and Recreation Department that will be held on April 13 and September 21 this year. The Community Clean-up events equip clubs, groups and individuals with cleaning supplies to adopt a street or an area in town to clean.
