When residents of the unincorporated area of Ceres were invited to bring their discarded goods and trash to a Nov. 4 county-sponsored cleanup collection site, they responded by hauling enough material to fill 20 40-yard dumpsters.
The event, held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Stanislaus County Public Works Department Building on Morgan Road, was organized by Stanislaus County Supervisor Channce Condit.
Condit said he was “thrilled to see the participation by the Ceres residents in making our second sponsored dump day a success.”
Since becoming District 5 supervisor in January 2021, Condit has arranged for the 14th cleanup for residents of the unincorporated areas of the county to curb the incidence of illegal dumping. Another one will occur in Newman in December.
Condit himself assisted residents in offloading discarded items and was assisted by county Public Works employees and Ceres Mayor Javier Lopez.
