Yard WasteIt's that time of a year again. The annual ASPOA yard waste collection weekend is scheduled for June 2 and 3rd from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The best approach to the event is to pre-load your truck on Friday. Prior to loading lay a tarp in the bottom of the bed and place yard clippings, wood, leaves, etc. on top of the tarp. So when at the collection site, the off load team will pull the tarp out of the bed bring the debris with it, this will make for a speedy off load and will allow you the opportunity to make more runs from your yard.
If you have yard waste in plastic bags, you will be required to take them home with you. This not only costs you time unloading but everyone else who is in line as well.
The early runs to the site will be congested, but as the heat of the day wears on the lines do subside. Saturday is a very busy day so if you can get it all done in one day then Sunday would be best.
You will need your ASPOA membership card and a lot of patience. I have hear of people getting in line at 6:50 and remember the gates do not open until 8 a.m.
ASPOA has announced it will hold it's annual picnic on June 24 from 1 to 4 p.m at the Alta Sierra County Club. The fee is $5 for members per person or $10 per household family. For non-members it is $7 per person or $15 for the family. This year there will be hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings as well as music, door prizes and activities for the kids.
