In honor of Earth Day, Alpine is hosting a community cleanup and recycling day on Saturday, right in the heart of town.
The “I Love a Clean Alpine” celebration runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include volunteers cleaning up along Alpine Boulevard. Participants are asked to meet at 8:30 a.m. at The Triangle at 2157 Alpine Blvd. Vests, trash bags and safety demos will be provided before the cleanup begins.
Over at the Albertsons parking lot at 2955 Alpine Blvd., the green-friendly action will continue with a free recycling event.
There, Alpine residents can safely get rid of their electronics, small appliances and tires from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will also be a free document shredding service offered from 9 a.m. to noon.
The environmental event is presented by the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce. This year’s sponsors include Recycle San Diego, the County of San Diego, Albertsons, Goodwill Industries, San Diego Gas & Electric, Cintas Document Management and Iberdrola Renewables.
