Minturn clean-up day June 2

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

MINTURN – The town of Minturn will hold its annual Town Clean-Up Day on Saturday. This year, the event will be held in a new location, the upper parking lot of Little Beach Park on Cemetery Road.

The annual clean-up event provides the residents of Minturn with a free and convenient receptacle to deposit their appliances, debris and undesired items from their property and home. The Minturn Public Works Department staff will be at Little Beach Park parking lot to help unload vehicles.

As in years past, there will be volunteers from Battle Mountain Development Co., Johnie’s Garden, the Minturn-Redcliff Business Association and the town of Minturn with trucks to assist residents with transporting their unwanted items to the Dumpsters. If residents, especially senior citizens, are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, items for disposal should be prepared and ready for pick-up in an accessible area. To sign up for this free service, contact Lisa Osborne at the Minturn Town Offices at 970-827-5645, extension 105, by Thursday. An email may also be sent to Osborne at

This year, residents may bring automotive batteries for disposal, free of charge. In addition, refrigerators with freon will be accepted during Town Clean-Up Day for no charge as well.

Items not accepted for pick-up or disposal include, but are not limited to: paint, rocks and dirt, commercial construction materials, hazardous waste, flammable items and oil of any kind.

Hazardous materials may be disposed of at the Household Hazardous Waste and Small Business Collection Facility located at the Eagle County Landfill.

Volunteers are needed to team up with town staff to clean-up litter and debris in all areas of town. Volunteers will be meeting at the Little Beach Park upper parking lot at 9 a.m. All volunteers are asked to sign in and then will be provided garbage bags, safety vests and gloves. Once signed-in and outfitted with the necessary gear, each volunteer will be assigned a specific area to work for litter pick-up.

As a token of the town’s appreciation, each participant will receive a $10 Minturn Money gift certificate that will be redeemable at participating businesses in Minturn.
