Minturn Town Clean-Up is Saturday
The town of Minturn will hold its annual Town Clean-Up Day on Saturday.
This year, the event will be held in the upper parking lot of Little Beach Park on Cemetery Road, allowing staff and volunteers to more efficiently assist citizens as they bring unwanted items to discard.
The annual cleanup provides the citizens 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 Company, the Minturn-Redcliff Business Association and the town of Minturn with trucks to assist residents with transporting their large, 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 pickup in an accessible area.
To sign up for this free service, contact Lisa Osborne at the Minturn Town Offices at 970-827-5645, ext. 105. An email may also be sent to Osborne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind, the Eagle Valley Community Fund will gladly take items in good condition for their annual fundraiser rummage sale at Maloit Park.
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 include, but are not limited to: paint, rocks and dirt, commercial construction materials, hazardous waste, flammable items and oil of any kind.
