City of Dos Palos Clean-Up Days are usually held in April and October. Unlike clean-up events of other local government agencies, ours are still free of cost thanks to the donations of equipment, funding, lunch, preparation, promotions, property, time, and work from “The Dos Palos Sun” newspaper, City Employees, Johnnie’s Cleaners, Republic Services (formerly Allied Waste/BFI), and the Merced Regional Waste Management Authority which operates the landfills.
