ASPEN, Colo. — The City of Aspen Streets Department is pleased to announce the return of the annual spring clean-up event. From May 17-20, Aspen residents who’ve made a prior appointment may have large trash items picked up curbside at their residence by the City’s Streets Department. To arrange for curbside pick-up, call 970-920-5130 no later than 6:30 a.m. on Monday, May 17.
Items to be picked up must be sorted by type. They include: branches and wood of 8 feet or less in length, metals, trash, tires, and leaves in compostable bags.
All piles must be labelled “City of Aspen Spring Clean-Up” or they will not be picked up. Branches and wood must be placed parallel to the street. Compostable bags are available at local hardware stores.
Items not included in pick-up include: household garbage, construction debris, batteries, paint, oil, refrigerators, hazardous waste, TVs, and any electronics with a memory chip. If these items are left on the curb, they will not be picked up.
