An excellent way to keep California clean. Enter on Diamond, follow the guides.

This in no way will help keep anything clean. Your above post is the only notification I received about E-waste Saturday. Total fail. There’s still time yet to drop off spuds’ sidewalk chalk and their blackboards.

My family went to the drop off. Even though there was a high volume of customers, the people working there were very efficient. We were out of there in less than five minutes. Thanks

My husband and I took the train into town today to hit up Gus' for brunch (yum!) and walked by the collection. I saw lots of people working, but not a lot of people dropping off - maybe I missed the line?
