If you haven’t already started gearing up your household for winter, the Big Bear City Community Services District offers another incentive to begin as, in less than two weeks, there will be a Electronic Waste Round-Up and Community Clean-Up Day. On Saturday, October 24, East Valley residents will be able to dump electronic waste and white goods at the Paradise Maintenance Yard (on Paradise Way at Grenfall), from 8am to 3pm. Items that will be accepted on this October 24 dump day include: computer monitors, televisions, printers, microwaves, fluorescent tubes, electric space heaters, clothes irons, phones, yard waste, old furniture, mattresses, washers, dryers and hot water heaters. Tires will also be accepted, though no oversized or commercial tires. CSD does ask that hazardous household waste (such as oil, paint and batteries) not be delivered to the Paradise Maintenance Yard; rather, drop-off is accepted at the hazardous waste collection facility at 42040 Garstin Drive in Big Bear Lake. For specifics on hazardous waste collection, call 800-OILY-CAT; for details on CSD’s October 24 dumping day, call 585-2565.
