Beautiful Barrel Springs and Joshua Ranch Trails were brought to our attention by many Palmdale residents as a site of investigation.
Along the miles of paved and unpaved roads there are multiple areas of household trash, construction debris and green waste.
The irony of so many dirt roads through the desert filled with asphalt piles and roofing tiles is the ability to reclaim that material for new paved routes and repairs.
Concrete can be crushed into new aggregate earning green building green points for LEED construction.
Mirrors like those found on closet doors can be taken to landfills or recycled into a DIY mosaic.
This is a gorgeous public park mired by layers of illegal dumped materials. We’ll be speaking with our friend Julianne Haness from Waste Management about organizing grassroots clean-ups in an upcoming post. Stay tuned.
