APRIL 23, 2019

This Saturday (April 27) is Dumpster Day for Arcadia. Between the hours of 8am and 4pm located at 9099 E. 266th Street, you can drop off your large items in the dumpster. (Items not accepted are cannisters, tires, propane tanks or anything with freon.)

This is a good opportunity to dispose of your burn barrels as CGS will not take them on regular trash days.
