Summit County Clean-Up Day slated for Saturday

Grab a bag and volunteer to clean up your community! Lost gloves, candy wrappers,

cigarette butts, soggy hats, water-logged cans, old lift tickets … are emerging from the snow with the advent of spring weather. Help get your community ready for summer and make your town sparkle again!

Breckenridge – Volunteers meet at the Riverwalk Center at 9 a.m. to pickup trash bags and gloves. The zero-waste picnic will be held at noon at the center and will feature live music, free food, beverages and door prizes.

The town no longer accepts general household trash or other items such as old appliances, hazardous waste and recyclables. To dispose of such items, call the Summit County Resource Allocation Park at (970) 468-9263.

For clean-up day, the town seeks additional volunteers to assist with the check-in and picnic. Shifts are 1-2 hours between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. To volunteer, contact Michelle Gehr at (970) 547-3100 ext. 0, or e-mail

For more information, call Breckenridge public works at (970) 453-3170 or visit

Dillon – Come join us as we spruce up the town to make way for the sunny days of spring and summer. Arbor Day festivities will follow at the volunteer picnic. Volunteers meet at town park at 9 a.m.

Silverthorne – Get out those gloves and help clean up neighborhoods, parks, trails and businesses. Volunteers meet at Rainbow Park at 9 a.m., then meet back at the park for a volunteer picnic at noon. Questions? Call the Silverthorne Recreation Center at (970) 262-7370

Frisco – Join other volunteers in Walter Byron Park at 9 a.m. for your clean-up assignments. Return to the park at noon for the zero-waste picnic and fabulous door prizes. The annual town party starts right after the picnic!
