INDIO HILLS – Riverside County’s community clean-ups start up for the year with a bulky waste disposal event in Indio Hills on Saturday, January 23.
The community clean-up will give residents of the community of Indio Hills the opportunity to dispose of tires, bulky items such as furniture and appliances, bundled tree limbs and branches, electronic waste and other items for free.
The items will be accepted at the Indio Hills Community Center in Indio Hills, 80-400 Dillon Rd., from 8 a.m. to noon or until bins are full. Residents will need to unload their waste items out of their vehicle and wear a face covering if they are within six feet of a non-household member.
“These community clean-ups help the community,” said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. “Many people might have items that have accumulated over the past few months that they want to dispose of. This event is a resource that helps keep our communities clean, and provides a free and proper alternative to illegal dumping.”
Acceptable bulky items include tires – up to nine per trip, furniture, appliances, bundled tree limbs and branches, and electronic waste.
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 Indio Hills 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.
