2018 Annual Spring Cleanup, and Earth Week Activities



Montrose, CO – The City of Montrose continues its annual Spring Cleanup tradition in tandem with its Earth Week celebrations, by providing disposal and recycling services from a single collection point. Residents are invited to bring cleanup items to the drop-off site located on the San Juan Bypass (Highway 50), directly across the street from the Sunshine Peak Apartments. Signs will direct residents to the drop-off location. 

The collection site will be open on the following days:
• Friday, April 27 from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
• Saturday, April 28 from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. 

Items accepted at the event include landscape materials such as leaves, grass clippings and limbs (less than six inches in diameter), scrap materials, and unwanted appliances. A $20 fee will be charged for appliances containing Freon. All other items may be dropped off free of charge. 

Routine household trash, hazardous materials, paint, tires and electronics with glass screens, such as televisions, will NOT be accepted. 

The city offers special collection services for sanitation customers. Fees for these services begin at $15. Collections are scheduled as personnel and equipment are available. To schedule a special collection or to obtain additional information, please call 970.240.1480. 

The City of Montrose sponsors and coordinates a full schedule of Earth Week activities each spring. A different theme is highlighted each year to raise community awareness of how individuals can help preserve a healthy environment for themselves and future generations. This year’s theme, Nature-Made Memories, is aimed at launching families and friends into the Western Slope’s beautiful outdoors to continue making life-long memories to share for years to come. 

For more information on Earth Week and to view a complete listing of activities, visit: CityofMontrose.org/EarthWeek, call 970.240.1420, or email events@visitmontrose.com.
