Community Clean-up Day tomorrow, Saturday 8/27!!

The Swansboro Pilots’ group, in partnership with MVFA, is again hosting a community clean-up day on Saturday August 27th. The dumpsters will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or until full, at the fire station on Rock Creek Rd. We can accept household and yard waste. 

We cannot accept any hazardous material, tires, appliances or mattresses. If you have any of these items, you can take them to the dump. They will accept mattresses for recycling Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at no charge. Tires can be taken in on the 3rd Saturday of each month (limit 9 per trip) also from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Hazardous materials are accepted every Friday and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at no charge. If you have any questions, give Kim Purcell a call at (530)621-1049.

Recycling in Mosquito/Swansboro!!

 Each month in the Mosquito Byte newsletter you see the request below:

ALL CA CRV ALUMINUM CANS, BEER BOTTLES AND PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES. Please drop off bags from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Fire Station. Please consider this option when you organize your recycled materials. (Wine bottles don’t have CRV! We can’t use them)
NOTE: The “recycle rules” at our new buy back location have changed. Lids/Caps on plastic and glass CRV containers MUST BE REMOVED before they can be redeemed. If you have a chance and can remove the lids, it will sure help the recycle volunteers.
This is a very important fund raiser for the Mosquito Volunteer Fire Association and

Today we want to give a shout out and THANK YOU to all who help us by donating your bottles and cans!! Here are a couple of pictures from last weekend. We love to see the young ones involved! What an awesome community that works together for the benefit of all!
