VAIL — Vail’s annual spring cleaning activities return this year with multiple events in April and May.

The annual Eagle River Watershed Council Highway Cleanup will occur Saturday, April 27. Volunteers are encouraged to join the town of Vail team to assist in cleaning sections of Interstate 70 and the frontage roads in Vail.

In May, dumpsters will be placed in Ford Park and the North Trail parking area at 2515 North Frontage Road in West Vail beginning, May 14 and will be available for residential use; large residential pickup will be offered by appointment beginning Thursday, May 16.

The spring cleaning blitz continues on Friday, May 17 with free, one-day-only, recycling opportunities for paper shredding, e-waste and household hazardous waste. Watch the town of Vail Facebook page for additional cleanup, habitat restoration and trail maintenance volunteer opportunities in the coming months.

Kristen Bertuglia, the town’s environmental sustainability manager, says the cleanup programs this spring are a great opportunity to get a jump start on spring cleaning and to encourage community members to join the town in keeping Vail clean and eco-friendly.  Funding for these events comes from fees generated through Vail’s “Kick the Bag Habit” program.
