Once again the City of Monte Vista is holding our annual City Clean Up Days September 29 and 30, 2023.  The City invites all residents to bring their trash and debris to the Public Works Yard at 384 SKI HI Trail for free dump services.  We have dumpsters setup and will collect all your waste (please note prohibited items).  The hours for this event are Friday, September 29th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 30th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We will take all trash and debris to include household trash, wood, construction products, limbs, metal, non-refrigerant appliances (stoves, washers, dryers).  We, however, cannot receive any electronics, paint, refrigerators, fuel, tires, or other items prohibited at the Landfill.
