A Portola Valley household cleanup day -- a day to responsibly dispose of items no longer wanted or needed -- is set for Saturday morning, Oct. 6, at Ford Field at 3399 Alpine Road.
This free service is available from 8 to 11 a.m. to residents only. To prove residence, bring the recent flier mailed to residences on this topic or a GreenWaste garbage bill.
Items accepted include indoor and outdoor furniture, mattresses, rugs and carpets, electronic gear such as computers and monitors, pots and pans, scrap metal, bikes, and appliances such as washers, dryers and toaster ovens.
Items not welcome: hazardous materials, batteries, tires, liquids, large pieces of plate glass, appliances containing chlorofluorocarbons such as refrigerators and air conditioners, and large amounts of rock, dirt or concrete.
Call Brandi de Garmeaux at 851-1700, ext. 222, for more information.
The town recommends that residents consider donating reusable items rather than disposing of them. A household hazardous waste disposal event in Portola Valley is tentatively set for Oct. 13. Appointments are required.
