Palos Verdes homes owners have two upcoming special trash collections.
The first is Palos Verdes Estates Special Refuse Collection which takes place this Saturday, April 24, 2010. Homeowners in Palos Verdes Estates actually look forward to this yearly event as it is an opportunity to clean out the garage and dispose of unwanted items without having to pay an extra fee for a "temporary debris box" also known as a dumpster. Items must be out at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on Saturday - everything from furniture, appliances, sinks, mattresses, rugs, etc. Unacceptable material includes construction waste, green waste, hazardous waste and electronic waste. A more complete list can be found at www.AthensServices.com
The annual Peninsula Hazardous Waste Round-up will be held Saturday, May 8, 2010 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Rancho Palos Verdes City Hall on Hawthorne Blvd. Some of the acceptable items include motor oil, paint, batteries, old televisions, computers, old prescriptions.
