The Placerville Police Department will hold another Community Clean-up Day on Sunday, April 6 at 10 a.m.

“The last clean-up day was such a success we would like to continue that momentum,” a press release from PPD stated. The focus of the day will be the upper Broadway area, with PPD supplying trash bags and gloves.

Laura Clark, an administrator of the El Dorado County Watch Facebook group who gathered volunteers for the previous Clean-up Day, noted that the event has been met with community support.

“Many local businesses and community members have come forward to help. Thank you El Dorado Disposal for donating all of the past dump fees, TruValue Hardware, Friends of the El Dorado Trail, The Windfall, Home Depot, Raleys, Christ Like Services, Halk Equipment Rental, JP Lee and Family Excavating,” Clark said. “I’m continually amazed at the giving nature of the people in this county. Special thanks to Placerville Police Chief Scott Heller and Sgt. Brody Jordan for their commitment to the community, volunteers and seeing this project to completion.” 

Clark said that some 600 bags of trash were collected at the first event, and that it is important to sign up with either Sgt. Jordan or the Facebook group so that PPD does not run out of gloves — a problem encountered the first time when more people than anticipated showed up to help.

“Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty in and shoes that you can climb the side of a hill in,” the press release stated.

Those interested in volunteering can sign up at facebook.com/events/675506552487912/ or call Sgt. Jordan at 530-642-5210.
