Vehicles were lined up and waiting at the Weed City Corporation Yard for the 8 a.m. start of Saturday’s City Cleanup Day, and they kept coming in slowly diminishing numbers as the day progressed.

Mark Mazzoni, one of the Weed Police Department’s community service officers working the Cleanup Day, praised C & D Waste Removal for its efforts on Saturday and always.

“They are right there, and they need kudos; they’re so good to the whole city,”?Mazzoni said. “They go out of their way for the citizens.”

“They’re on top of it,”?said Roxann Anzo. “If it wasn’t for C & D, this wouldn’t happen.”

With help from Weed’s community service officers, C &?D was sorting and hauling away the garbage as it came in.

Wood debris was headed for chipping, metal was going to Black Butte Towing, Les Schwab Tire was taking the used tires and batteries, and just plain garbage was headed for the Black Butte transfer station.

Mazzoni said the Cleanup Day, paid for by the city’s Transient Occupancy Tax funds, can help keep neighborhoods cleaner and prevent some illegal dumping in rural areas.
