Update: Free Dump Day For Tuolumne County Residents Closed Early
Update at 11:30 a.m.: Clean California and Caltrans District 10 Tuolumne County Dump Day was a huge success today, forcing it to end early. Originally scheduled to run until 3 p.m. today, Caltrans officials tell Clarke Broadcasting they have had to shut it as they have reached capacity at the Caltrans Sand Shed located at the intersection of Highway 108 and Soulsbyville Road. For those who missed out on today’s event to unload household trash and items such as tires, mattresses, and E-waste such as televisions, radios, and cameras in addition to computer printers, screens, keyboards, hard drives, and related material, there will be a second opportunity in April. No date has yet been set, according to Caltrans officials, but they say it will be even bigger with furniture and appliances to be taken on that dump day.
