CARBONDALE, Colorado – The Garfield County Commissioners will hold their next regular meeting, on April 12, at the Carbondale Town Hall, located at 511 Colorado Ave.

The meeting will begin at 8 a.m., with periods for public comments from those not on the agenda at 8 a.m. and again at 1 p.m., after the lunch break.

The change in venue is part of an effort by the board of county commissioners to be in closer contact with constituents throughout the vast territory within Garfield County, by holding one meeting a month at a location away from the normal meeting room in Glenwood Springs.

The city of Glenwood Springs sponsors its annual spring cleanup from April 12-23.

Residents within city limits can place items to be discarded on the side of the street in front of their homes by 7 a.m. the first day of cleanup. Volume is limited to one dump truck load (approximately five cubic yards) per residence.

Hazardous items, such as batteries, tires, paint, gas or air cylinders, waste motor oil, etc., cannot be picked up. A separate household hazardous waste collection day will take place on April 24 for those types of items.

All debris must be kept separate from regular household trash containers, and city crews will not go onto private property to pick up items.

Recyclable materials, such as wood products, metals and appliances, should be put in separate piles. No “community piles” are allowed.

The service is limited to city residents only. Anyone dumping debris from outside city limits will be ticketed and fined for illegal dumping.

For more information, call the Glenwood Springs Public Works Department at 384-6379.
