City of Blythe Illegal Dumping
October 22, 2019
BLYTHE, CA – To combat a spike in illegal dumping in our community we are asking for your help to keep Blythe clean. You can do this by only discarding items in designated trash receptacles, by not dumping large items and trash in our alleys, on our streets, sidewalks or on private property and by reporting anyone you see illegally dumping to the Blythe Police Department at 760-922-6111.
Did you know that bulky items such as mattresses, furniture and appliances can be picked up by CR&R at no cost to the customer? Each household is able to have 4 bulky items picked up per year. You can schedule your bulky item pick up by calling CR&R at 1-800-922-2278.
Please remember illegal dumping is a crime. Anyone caught illegally dumping is guilty of an infraction and, upon conviction, shall be punished by a fine of up to two hundred fifty dollars.
Illegal dumping is ugly. Please help keep Blythe clean. Thank you in advance for your help.
