Glenwood’s Spring Cleanup starts April 14

Editor’s note: This is the first notice of this annual event. More notices, including the pickup schedule for individual areas, will be published prior to the start of the cleanup.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — It is time again to take advantage of the city’s annual program and do some spring cleaning.

The city urges residents to note the zones and sequence change from year to year.

REGULATIONS

This service is only for residences within the city limits of Glenwood Springs. Anyone dumping debris from outside city limits will be issued a ticket and fined for illegal dumping.

No service is available to commercial properties.

Volume is limited to one dump truck load (approximately 5 cubic yards) per residence.

Hazardous items cannot be picked up (includes batteries, tires, paints, gas or air cylinders, gas tanks, sealed containers, waste motor oil, antifreeze, copiers, television sets or computer monitors.)

A Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is scheduled for April 26. Call 945-5375 for additional information or to make an appointment.

Refrigerated appliances will be picked up only if they have a “Freon Free” certificate properly attached.

Tree limbs should be cut into lengths not longer than 6 feet and stacked neatly and separated to be chipped.

Place recyclable materials such as wood products, metals and appliances in separate piles to assist in recycling as much material as possible.

REMINDERS

Place items out by 7 a.m. of the first day of clean up in your area. Place items in the street in front of your residence. Remember that community piles are not allowed.

Keep all debris separate from regular household trash containers so it will not interrupt regular trash service.

City crews will not go onto private property to pick up items.

City crews can make only one trip through each neighborhood, so it’s important that all items are ready by the start date for your area.

Do not place your items against any buildings or fences.

Do not place items out that you do not want removed: wheelbarrow, trashcans, tubs and the like, as all items in the pick up area will be removed.

Do not place items on grass or landscaped area as machinery may cause damage.

The city will not be responsible for damage in these cases. For questions, call Public Works at 384-6379.
