Holtville’s Fall Community Cleanup Day will be taking place this Saturday morning.
Open to all city residents, the event allows a quick and easy way to get rid of things that have been piling up in the back yard or garage. Some of the things might be too large to fit in a residential trash can, while others aren’t allowed to be disposed of on regular trash days.
There is a long list of items that can be dropped off. This includes furniture like sofa beds, couches, tables, chairs, mattresses, box springs, and patio furniture. Large appliances like refrigerators, stoves, washing machines, dryers and water heaters can also be disposed of.
This is also a good opportunity to clear the house of old electronics like microwaves, TVs, computers, laptops, monitors, printers, fax machines and copiers. Yard waste like grass clippings, tree trimmings and branches will also be accepted.
Automobile and light truck tires will also be accepted. Residents may drop off up to nine tires without the need for a special transportation waiver from the county environmental health department. The tires can have the rims still attached.
The cleanup event will be held from 7 a.m. until noon at the old city dump at 2199 Bonds Corner Road, which is just south of town on Walnut Avenue. It is a joint effort of the City of Holtville and CR&R, the city’s
contracted trash hauler.
Residents must show proof of residency in Holtville, including a drivers license and a city water bill. No businesses may take part, and no commercial dumping is allowed.
