The Golden Valley Cactus Cleaners have been busy again.

Mark Schmiedeke, Ed Rowley and Wayne Hollins spent Veteran’s Day morning, Nov. 11, cleaning up an illegal tire dump in the south end of Golden Valley.

They loaded up another 286 tires. Earlier in the week they hauled out an additional 125 tires from the same location, and estimate to be about 25 percent done. Then they will start on the trash.

This year the Cactus Cleaners have hauled 48,690 pounds of trash and 1,039 tires to the landfill, not including this load of tires.

The Cactus Cleaners is a group of volunteer Golden Valley residents who are committed to cleaning up our desert.
