Rocklin Clean-Up Day is Saturday, April 20. Items will be collected that normal trash collections will not take, including electronic waste. Pick-up services will be offered to elderly or disabled Rocklin residents.

No refrigerators, freezers or air-conditioning units; nothing over 6 feet in length or width; no hazardous materials, such as paints or pesticides; no U-Haul-type trucks; and no trailers. The deadline to request a pick-up is 5 p.m. Thursday, April 18.

At the same time, Mormon Helping Hands will be out in force statewide. Hundreds of volunteers from the Rocklin wards (congregations) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will volunteer throughout the city, including helping with the Clean-up Day

“Our example of service comes from our savior Jesus Christ,” said Maureen Dudley, public affairs director for the church in the Rocklin region. “Our members are very grateful to the city of Rocklin, Stand Up Placer and our local school district for providing opportunities to team up and improve our communities.”

Volunteers of all ages – wearing the traditional bright yellow vests – will be scattered throughout Rocklin painting fences, pulling weeds and staining bollards at more than a dozen different locations. Additionally, a large group of volunteers will be at the safe house of Stand Up Placer to help organize, repair and paint the facilities. Church members invite neighbors and community members of any faith to join them in improving the community.
