Gonzales, CA 93926
8 AM to 2 PM Saturday & Sunday, June 22 & 23: Gonzales residents (no businesses) are invited to participate in this FREE annual weekend cleanup event. The event is conveniently located at Fairview Middle School. Event volunteers work to assist residents with unloading their vehicles. The event accepts general garbage (must be bagged), electronic waste, metal, mixed plastic, and cardboard recycling. Reusable and recyclable items are separated at the event. There is a "drop and swap" area where still-usable items can be left to share with those who might find them still useful. The local clothing closet accepts donations of usable clothing, and a local animal shelter benefits from donations of towels, sheets, and blankets. Mattresses and heavy metal items such as household appliances and water heaters are directed by the event to the nearby Johnson Canyon Landfill (these items are accepted for FREE on any day of the year). Disposal vouchers are provided for refrigerators and freezers. Yard waste, wood waste, tires, couches, and large furniture are not accepted at this event. Special hazardous waste collection of items such as antifreeze, batteries, oil, and paint are accepted only on the Saturday portion of the event.
