Watch your waste; get rid of it safely

Post Independent Opinion

Spring is here and that means cleaning up to many of us.The city of Glenwood Springs is currently holding its annual spring cleanup where residents can put out trash for crews to pick up.What they can’t pick up is just as important, and that’s where Saturday’s household hazardous waste collection comes in.This allows residents to drop off all kinds of material that landfills won’t accept. Materials like paint, pesticides, cleaners, flammable materials, and things that should never be hastily dumped onto the ground. (See related announcement)Saturday is the chance to get rid of these damaging materials in the most responsible way. Please take advantage of it.The service is free to Glenwood Springs residents and $25 for residents living outside the city.It’s a small price to pay to be responsible. It’s no coincidence that the event is held on Earth Day. Take care of the Earth by being responsible. The hazardous waste collection will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1015 School St., next to the Glenwood Springs Recycling Center. Material will be accepted by appointment only. Call 945-5375 for an appointment or information.
