Garden Grove

“Dumpster days” win approval

SIX COMMUNITY CLEANUP days have been approved for Garden Grove (Shutterstock).

The proposal to organize a program of “dumpster days/community cleanup” in each of the city’s six council districts was approved at Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove City Council. The vote was 7-0.

Originally conceived by Mayor Pro Tem Kim Nguyen, the program authorizes six cleanup events over a series of weekends between August and December 2021.

The cost of the cleanup events will be borne by Republic Services, which provides refuse pickup and recycling services to Garden Grove.

Also Tuesday night, the council heard a report on police and fire activities over the Fourth of July weekend, and City Manager Scott Stiles presented plaques of appreciation to department heads and others involved in supervising the city’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The next regular meeting of the council is scheduled for Tuesday, July 27 in the Community Meeting Center.
