Community Clean Up Event

It is time to get the house and backyard cleaned up – and EDCO is here to help.

You can dispose of your unwanted stuff for FREE. Residents may dispose of unwanted items such as broken appliances, water heaters, furniture, old mattresses, tree branches (must be tied into bundles and must not exceed two feet in diameter or four feet in length) and other miscellaneous household bulky items that are too large or too heavy to place in your trash cans on collection day. Simply place the items you’d like picked up out on the curb with your regular trash containers on your regularly scheduled collection day during the cleanup event. Debris from contractors, landscapers or commercial businesses will NOT be accepted.

Condominium Communities: Residents living in a condominium complex can participate in the cleanup event by calling (714) 522-3577 no later than May 13, 2019 to schedule a special pick up.

Spring Clean-Up Event:

May 20 – 24, 2019

La Palma Sixth Graders Graduate from the Police Department’s PIY Program

Over the past two weeks, the La Palma Police Department and the sixth grade classes at Miller Elementary School, Los Coyotes Elementary School and Luther Elementary School celebrated the completion of the Police Department’s Police Interaction with Youth (PIY) program.

The highly successful program covers topics such as internet safety, bullying, peer pressure and drug use. School Resource Officer Hongsing Phou taught the program over an eight week period and developed strong relationships with many of the students who will be attending Walker Junior High School next year.

Congratulations La Palma sixth graders and Officer Phou for another successful year!
