DHS Mayor Scott Matas Spearheads School Cleanup at Two Bunch Palms Elementary

Posted on May 6, 2024

Our beloved Mayor Scott Matas has resumed his school cleanup program for calendar year 2024, starting bright and early today at Two Bunch Palms Elementary. After Mayor Matas spoke to students and teachers about how important it is to have a clean school and a clean city, Liz Hernandez from Desert Valley Disposal presented a fun exercise where students decide which bin a particular type of trash goes into. Then, all students walked the grounds of the school, gloves and bags in-hand, to pick up trash and beautify their school grounds. Not only was this a cleaning event, but most importantly, it was a learning experience for the students, all of whom were told to go home and teach their parents and siblings about the importance of adequately disposing of household trash. Mayor Matas plans to hold similar events at all schools located in Desert Hot Springs between now and the end of the year.

Here’s just some of the trash that was collected.
