Volunteers wanted for Countywide Town Clean Up Day events

As the snow recedes, a season’s worth of lost mittens, abandoned dog poop bags and misplaced treasures reveal themselves. The towns of Blue River, Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and Silverthorne are asking their residents to help clean up Summit County during the annual Countywide Town Clean Up Day event planned for Saturday, May 21.

Volunteer check in will be at 9 a.m. in each town.

In Blue River, volunteers will meet at the Blue River Town Hall, 0110 Whispering Pines Circle. In Breckenridge, volunteers are asked to meet at the Riverwalk Center, 150 W. Adams Ave. In Frisco, volunteers will meet at the Frisco Historic Park, 120 Main St. In Dillon, volunteers will meet at Town Hall, 275 Lake Dillon Drive. In Silverthorne, volunteers will meet at Rainbow Park, 430 Rainbow Drive.

Volunteers will get trash bags, gloves, coffee and morning treats. Volunteers may also choose to pick a favorite area they feel needs attention, or organizers can assign them one.

After a morning of spring cleaning, volunteers will receive a zero waste thank-you picnic at each town’s check-in location. Organizers ask volunteers to bring water bottles and coffee mugs to keep up the county’s zero-waste effort.

More specific information is available through each town.
