Breck clean-up day set for May 10

BRECKENRIDGE – Breckenridge town officials are looking for volunteers to man drop stations during the town’s annual Town Clean-up Day May 10.

The event, which goes from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., involves short shifts and easy duties, said Ken Miller of the Breckenridge Resort Chamber. Volunteers direct citizens to trash bins, recycling bins and other sites as they bring in trash, recyclables and other things they find as they help clean up the town after the snow melts.

Miller also is looking for prize donations for the volunteer raffle.

A barbecue and party is scheduled for all volunteers at Carter Park after the clean-up.

To volunteer or donate a raffle prize, call Miller at (970) 453-2913, ext. 210.
