Spring season equals Spring clean-up at Edwards

Winter is finally over and spring has arrived officially as of March 20.

Not unlike the same things we do at home every year such as clearing the winter weather debris blown into our yards; removing dead plants and weeds; here at Edwards we have an official event known as the annual Spring Clean-Up Week.

Brig. Gen. Michael Brewer, 412th Test Wing commander, has announced that April 22 through 29 is Edwards AFB Spring Clean-Up Week.

“As with every Spring Clean-Up, we rely on the support of all base personnel. The accumulation of trash is not only an eye sore but it is also hazardous to our health, and increases the potential of a fire hazard,” said Brewer. “Our strong Antelope Valley winds create a large accumulation of trash, brush and other debris, so it is important that each of us takes the time to do our part in cleaning up the areas where we live and work. This ensures Edwards AFB not only looks great, but stays that way.”

To ensure everyone is in compliance with base standards, Facility Managers are encouraged to use this week for general interior and exterior housekeeping and to perform improvement projects, such as self-help painting or landscaping. Facility managers should contact the 412th Test Wing Civil Engineer Division Logistics Section, located in Building 3500, at (661) 277-2938 in order to make arrangements to obtain self-help materials.

The Self-Help Center hours of operation are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. If facility managers require bulk waste collection for large item disposals, they should contact the 412th Test Wing Civil Engineer Division Customer Service Unit at (661) 277-3330 to schedule collection.

Housing occupants are encouraged to utilize the U-Fix-It Store at (661) 258-4461. Household hazardous materials can be dropped off for reuse and residents can obtain supplies and equipment to assist in home and gardening projects. Housing occupants are also reminded that recyclable items and green waste must be placed in the appropriate containers. If housing occupants place trash or garbage in plastic bags or boxes, please remember the 50-pound weight limit. Along with their regular scheduled bulk pick up, an extra bulk pick up will be provided to all housing residents. Metal items can be taken to the recycling center at the Base Landfill, located at Building 7990.

Anti-freeze can be turned in at the Auto Hobby Shop at Building 2440. Motor oil can be turned in at the Army and Air Force Exchange Service Gas Station, located at Building 2110. Tires can be turned in at either the Auto Hobby Shop or AAFES Gas Station for a minimal disposal fee. Paint, household chemicals, gas cans with gas and all household batteries can be turned in at the U-Fix-It Store, Wednesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Team Edwards members can turn in usable items for reuse to Airman’s Attic, Thrift Store, Base Supply and the Recycling Center.

Let’s do our part to continue making Edwards AFB a great place to live and work.
