“Let’s Work Together!” That’s the slogan for the annual Town Spring Clean-up Day sponsored by the Patagonia Regional Business Coalition.

Sporting a lively new poster this year, the PRBC and its sponsors have designated April 21 as the day area residents can dispose of their hazardous materials at Doc Mock Park across from the public restrooms from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Contrary to the message on that poster, however, electronics may be recycled at this event, as the PRBC has engaged a vendor that will accept a variety of electronics. Biomedical waste will not be accepted.

The date for recycling all other kinds of household waste is April 28. Volunteers will assemble at the gazebo at 7:00a.m. for free coffee and juice before spreading out to canvass
the entire town to pick up discarded trash and debris that residents must have at the curb by 7:00 a.m. The volunteers will work until the job is finished and will be rewarded with
free hot dogs and hamburgers.

Sandwiched between the two events will be two days—April 25 and 26—when the town will open its landfill for residents to take items directly there free of charge from 8:00a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Residents who need help moving items to the curb may call Ray Klein (520-394-2530) at least 24 hours before pick-up for special assistance.

All volunteers are welcome to participate. They should dress light and bring gloves. Rakes, shovels, and pitch forks are needed and there is a particular need for trailers, especially
dump trailers.
