GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – It is time again to spruce up and clean up. Beginning April 16, residents can take advantage of Glenwood’s annual spring cleanup program to do some cleaning around the house.

Cleanup crews will come through each neighborhood only once, so check the map with this story and be ready by the start date for your area.

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

The service is not offered to commercial properties.

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

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

A separate household hazardous waste collection day will be held Saturday, April 21. Call 945-5375 for additional information and to make an appointment.

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

Tree limbs should be cut into lengths no longer than six feet and stacked neatly and separated so they can be mulched at the landfill.

Please place recyclable materials such as wood products, metals, appliances, etc., in separated piles to assist the cleanup crews in recycling as much material as possible.

Make sure to have all 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. Trailer park residents need to keep items in front of their own residence or next to the road adjacent to their home. Community piles are not allowed.

Keep all cleanup piles separate from your regular household trash containers so it will not interrupt regular trash service.

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

Do not place items against buildings or fences, or on grass or landscaped areas as machinery may cause damage. The city will not be responsible for damage in these cases.

Don’t leave anything in your pile that you do not want removed, such as a wheelbarrow, trash cans or tubs. Everything in the pickup area will be removed.
