City Rolls Out Plans for Annual Spring Cleanup Event

Apr 12th @ 9:48 am in News by Scott Staley

City of Montrose

This year the City of Montrose will take a new approach to its annual Spring Cleanup tradition by changing from curbside collection to 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:
•    Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
•    Saturday, April 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Items that will be accepted include landscape materials such as leaves, grass clippings and limbs less than six inches in diameter, scrap materials, unwanted appliances, electronics and un-mounted car/small truck tires. A fee will be charged for tires and appliances containing Freon, but all other items can be dropped off free of charge.

Items that will not be accepted include routine household trash, hazardous materials, paint and large truck/tractor tires.

Residents also have the opportunity to take advantage of “free day” at the Montrose County Landfill from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on April 20.

For additional information, please call 240-1480.
