The event, held twice a year once in the spring and again in the fall, usually has a high turnout according to Dolores Badillo, community relations compliance specialist with CR&R.

"CR&R is anticipating a good turn-out for the Temeculaís city-wide clean-up on Saturday, April 26," said Badillo. "The location at Chaparral High School on Nicolas Rd. is once again the site for this collection event which is held every spring and fall."
