Sheriff’s Recycling Lifejackets Project Now Underway

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — With boating season about to begin a local sheriff’s office is inviting folks to take advantage of a program intended to literally help preserve lives.

According to Calaveras County sheriff’s officials, five sheriff’s substations are now serving as drop off and pick up locations for unused lifejackets. Anyone with lifejackets their family has either outgrown or no longer needs is encouraged to recycle and bring them in so others in need can pick up one or more as available and put into good use.

Sheriff’s volunteers staffing the substations will take in the lifejackets and — as long as supplies last — hand them out along with related safety information. Below are the sheriff’s substation locations where lifejackets can be brought and also picked up:

–Valley Springs Substation (200 Highway 12); 209 772-1039
–Camanche South Shore Substation, Burson (1170 Wade Lane); 209 763-5863
–West Point Substation (290 Cemetary Lane); 209 293-1515
–Copperopolis Substation (3505 Spangler Lane, Suite 105); 209 753-0031
–Arnold Substation (2182 Highway 4); 209 795-0473
