Clean-up Mammoth

mammothTown Clean-Up Day: Saturday, May 19

New this year, the Town, in partnership with Mammoth Disposal and Sierra Conservation Project, will set-up eight (8) Town Clean Up Day Stations conveniently located throughout Town. Each station will accept trash/recycling material and green waste. No food waste or construction material please.

View the detailed map identifying the eight stations, open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 19, 2012. Mammoth Creek Park will be the hub for Town Clean-Up Day activities where you can get maps and directions to the eight stations located at: Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station, Fire Station 1 & 2, Canyon & Eagle Lodge, Mammoth Lakes Community Center, and 2 locations in Sierra Valley sites.

The Town and Mammoth Disposal will NOT be distributing or collecting orange trash bags this year. Please purchase your yard-waste bags from local businesses, including the Do-It Center or ACE Hardware.

“Town Clean-Up Day is an immense undertaking that would not be possible without the generous support of our many partners, along with the willingness of the community to pitch in and clean-up their neighborhood,” commented Stuart Brown, Recreation Manager for the Town of Mammoth Lakes.

Please do not leave filled bags on the side of the road. These items will not be collected by Town staff or Mammoth Disposal. Please deliver these items to the eight (8) Town Clean-Up Day Stations conveniently located throughout Town, or directly to the Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station at 59 Commerce Drive.

The USFS and MLFD will recycle green waste, such as: pine cones, needles, and tree limbs less than 12” in diameter. FREE of charge on Saturday, May 19, 2012 between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station.

Town Clean-Up Day is proudly supported by the Town of Mammoth Lakes, County of Mono, Mammoth Disposal, Sierra Conservation Project, United States Forest Service, Mammoth Lakes Fire District, Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, and the Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce.

For additional information on Town Clean-Up Day or to volunteer your group or organization to clean up an area of Town, contact Recreation Supervisor John Connolly at (760) 934-8989 ext. 234, or to arrange for collection of abandoned vehicles, please contact Sr. Building Inspector Johnny Goetz at (760) 934-8989 ext. 244.

Scapegoating….really?…are you one of the 5 Rachel Maddow viewers? That sounds just like something she would spew out. Why turn something as positive as the cleanup into political tripe? knock it off already.

Prescription to stop the foaming at the mouth:

1. Turn off Limbaugh
2. Turn off Fox
3 Throw away all your “I hate liberals” books by the lovely Ann Coulter.

You should start to feel normal almost immediately.

You’re kidding, right, Rob? Most of the trash in our beautiful mountain town is always found around the nearest chairlift. The cigarette butts, beer cans, Kleenex snot rags, and plastic bags are not because the bear and coyote are the culprits. It’s another sort of animal – The wild pigs… Read more »

There is almost zero real pollution up here caused by visitors any more. It’s DWP that’s the real culprit lurking up here. Don’t be fooled.

Here’s the FAQ about unemployment insurance that all those free loaders collect. By the way, that free loader must have earned over $11,000 in a QUARTER to qualify for maximum benefits. Who knew free loaders could get such a good paying job? http://www.edd.ca.gov/unemployment/faq_-_eligibility.htm#HowareUIbenefitscalculated In particular, these three clauses are interesting:… Read more »

Too bad there isn’t a way to receive a ticket with the garbage bag or something.

The get together at the park was one of the nicer community gatherings of Mammoth Lakes.

This idea that you can collect unemployment for 2 years without having worked is a fabrication from the right wing noise machine.

Agreed! I don’t know where the idea of “free loading” comes from. Will someone please tell me how I can get stuff for free? I’m tired of paying for everything and I’ve looked for free stuff — can’t find any.
