    San Bernardino County Supervisors 

 Help KEEP MOUNTAINS CLEAN

 

 

SAN BERNARDINO — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proud to partner with San Bernardino County Supervisors Janice Rutherford and James Ramos to place trash bins on state highways in the San Bernardino Mountain Communities. This accomplishment is due to the combined efforts of the County Supervisors, Burrtec and Big Bear

Disposal. 

 

The trash bins will be placed at various locations on State Routes 18, 38, 173 and 330. The goal of these trash bins is to help reduce the amount of litter that is left behind by visitors during snow events. Mountain communities have been working with Caltrans and other agencies to come up with a plan to provide other means to stash trash. Supervisor Rutherford and Supervisor Ramos were able to make this plan come to fruition to allow for a clean and pristine area for visitors and residents.

Caltrans District 8 Director John Bulinski stated “Today is a proud day for our region as we have taken a major step in eliminating litter from our stunning mountains that people from all over the country come to visit.”

San Bernardino County Supervisor James Ramos, who represents the Big Bear Valley, emphasized the importance of making memories but stated “This enjoyment comes with responsibility. We need to protect our environment and help maintain its natural beauty.”

 

San Bernardino County Supervisor Janice Rutherford, who represents the Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs area, echoed this point by stating that “We welcome visitors who drive up and enjoy the snow, but ask that you please respect the forest and our mountain residents by not littering or trespassing on private property.” 

 

City of Big Bear Lake Mayor Rick Herrick comments, “We are so happy to partner with Burrtec and Big Bear Disposal and provide better opportunities to visitors to enjoy coming to the mountains with a pristine environment and ask that they participate in taking care of our forests and communities. When everyone shares in the responsibility, we all will benefit.

This is a good start to keeping the San Bernardino Mountains healthy and beautiful as well as decrease potential wild-fires. The Clean Bear sites are available to everyone, including weekend visitors. Thanks, for establishing this program to help with the mountain roadways.”  

 

The trash bins will be placed prior to storm events and removed promptly after the heavily traveled weekends. Caltrans is looking to expand this program to other areas in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties next year.

San Bernardino - El Departamento de Transporte de California (Caltrans) se enorgullece de asociarse con los Supervisores del Condado de San Bernardino Janice Rutherford y James Ramos para colocar contenedores de basura en las carreteras estatales en las Comunidades de las Montañas de San Bernardino. Este logro se debe a los esfuerzos combinados de los Supervisores del Condado, Burrtec y Big Bear Disposal.  

 

Los contenedores de basura se colocarán en varios lugares en las Rutas Estatales 18, 38, 173 y 330. El objetivo de estos contenedores de basura es ayudar a reducir la cantidad de basura que dejan los visitantes durante los eventos de nieve. Las comunidades de montaña han estado trabajando con Caltrans y otras agencias para elaborar un plan para proporcionar otros medios para esconder basura. El Supervisor Rutherford y el Supervisor Ramos pudieron hacer realidad este plan para permitir un área limpia y prístina para visitantes y residentes.

El Director del Distrito 8 de Caltrans, John Bulinski, declaró: "Hoy es un día de orgullo para nuestra región ya que hemos dado un paso importante en la eliminación de la basura de nuestras impresionantes montañas que vienen a visitar personas de todo el país".

 

El Supervisor del Condado de San Bernardino, James Ramos, quien representa al área de Big Bear, enfatizó la importancia de hacer recuerdos pero dijo: "Este placer viene con responsabilidad. Necesitamos proteger nuestro medioambiente y ayudar a mantener su belleza natural ".

La Supervisora del Condado de San Bernardino Janice Rutherford, que representa el área  de Lake Arrowhead y Running Springs, hizo eco de este punto al decir que "Damos la bienvenida a los visitantes que manejan y disfrutan de la nieve, pero pídales que respeten el bosque y los residentes de la montaña o allanamiento en propiedad privada ". 

 

Los contenedores de basura se colocarán antes de los eventos de tormentas y se eliminarán inmediatamente después de los fines de semana muy transitados. Caltrans busca expander este programa a otras áreas en los condados de San Bernardino y Riverside el próximo año.
