   Recyclilng Questions


Due to the weather, the February 18, 2017 Shredding Event was canceled.

The machines cannot shred wet paper, as it is too heavy and jams the equipment.

We have re-scheduled the Shredding and E-Waste event for Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 8:00 am to Noon. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Upcoming Shredding and E-Waste Event is on April 22, 2017 at 8 AM City Hall Parking Lot in Palm Springs located at 3200 East Tahquitz Canyon Way.

 


 Visit the City of Palm Springs Dog Park!

Information is available for residents regarding how to purchase a bench or walkway brick in memory of a four-legged friend or family member.

The newly refurbished dog park features brand new sod, benches, drinking fountains, LED lighting, new walkways, irrigation and more shading for everyone.
“The Palm Springs Dog Park has been transformed into a state-of-the-art pooch paradise,” according to City Manager David H. Ready. “It’s incredibly gratifying to see how the fruits of our Measure J tax dollars have led to these wonderful improvements for residents and their four-legged friends.”
