Each year the City of San Diego’s Environmental Services Department conducts special community cleanup events in neighborhoods throughout the City. Areas are selected for these events based upon citizen requests, pledges of community involvement and previous citizen participation levels. On Saturday, Dec. 1 this department, along with the Chollas View Neighborhood Council, conducted a community cleanup in the Chollas View area. This successful cleanup removed a total of 32.50 tons of waste (29.35 tons of non-recyclables and 3.15 tons of recyclables) consisting of metals and appliances from the neighborhood. Mrs. Matthews and the Chollas View Neighborhood Council are to be commended for their assistance and support.
For more information regarding this cleanup, contact Solid Waste Code Enforcement Officer Stacy Workman at: (858) 492-5084
