Spring Cleanup starts April 15

Glenwood Springs’ annual Spring Cleanup takes place from April 15-26.

City crews will remove trash from city residences with restrictions listed below. This is a limited time offer, so it is recommended to plan ahead. Note the zones and sequence change from last year.

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.

Volume is limited to one dump truck load (approximately five 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, etc.) There will be a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on April 20. Call 945-5375 for additional information and 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 mulched.

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

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 residences. Trailer parks, etc., need to keep their items in front of their residence or next to the road adjacent to their home. 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 scheduled start date per area.

Do not place items against any buildings, fences, etc.

Do not place items out that you do not want removed – wheelbarrow, trashcans, tubs, etc. – 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 information, call Public Works at 384-6379.
