Saturday: Cleanup day in Portola Valley

A neighborhood cleanup day for Portola Valley residents is set for Saturday morning, Oct. 3, at at the Town Center at 765 Portola Road. This free service is available from 8 to 11 a.m. to residents who bring a copy of their garbage bill as proof of residence.

What to bring:
