Desert Pigs ~ Yerington Begins to Tackle Illegal Dump Site at West End of Campbell Lane: Requests Yeringtonites Help on 12/9 to Complete the Job

On Saturday, December 2, 2023 a small group of volunteers from the Yerington Chapter of Desert Pigs met at 9am at Jackson’s Service Station at the corner of W. Goldfield Avenue and Highway 339. They travelled out to a RIDICULOUSLY ENORMOUS illegal dump site on the West end of Campbell Lane. Just imagine  how discouraging this dump must be for these volunteers who give their time, effort, and money (fuel and transfer station fees) to keep Mason Valley clean!

Phil Wooley who coordinates Desert Pig-sponsored clean-ups has scheduled another one for this illegal dump area:

Yerington: Saturday, 12/9/2023 at 9:00 am

Phil wrote: “We need an army for this one! There is a huge dump just outside the Yerington Paiute Tribe, which will need all the hands, trucks and trailers we can get. This spot has been used as a free dumpsite for too long. It’s time to take it back!

Meet at Jackson’s/Chevron at the corner of Hwy 339 and W. Goldfield Avenue in Yerington.”

Volunteer information is at the end of this article!

PLEASE YERINGTONITES…COME ALONG FOR A FEW HOURS IN THE MORNING ON SATURDAY 12/9 TO BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION!!
