Volunteers receive a free t-shirt and discount coupons for lunch at more than a dozen participating Victorville restaurants.
Businesses interested in sponsoring the event should contact the City of Victorville Solid Waste Division at 760-955-4817. Individuals or groups interested in volunteering should fill out a volunteer registration/waiver form and send it back to the City of Victorville Solid Waste Division by October 7th to receive a t-shirt.

The event is open to all High Desert residents. Businesses are also encouraged to create teams to participate.
The Victorville Community Cleanup Day is a semi-annual event, held each April and October. The event began in October 2007. Since then, more than 5,000 volunteers have worked together to collect over 48 tons of litter from Victorville roadsides. Last April, over 800 people volunteered, collecting 6.5 tons of litter from 25 different sites around the City. The goal for this October’s event is to again recruit over 800 volunteers to help out.
