Glenwood Springs Cancels 2021 Spring Clean Up, Offers Landfill Vouchers

The City of Glenwood Springs has cancelled Spring Clean Up for 2021. This is a proactive measure to limit employee-resident interactions to slow the potential spread, impacts, and damage of COVID-19. Residents can receive a voucher for one free personal pick-up size load at the landfill to assist with normal Spring Clean Up items. Vouchers are available to Glenwood Springs residents only, and only one per household. 

The vouchers are not redeemable for cash and are only valid for the resident and address listed on the voucher. Face coverings are required at the landfill while outside of one’s vehicle. Those without a face covering will be asked to leave and return with the appropriate face covering.

Acceptable Voucher materials include metal, wire, bicycles, wood, brush, appliances, yard waste (not bagged). Materials NOT accepted: electronic recycling, tires, hazardous waste, paints, oils, or appliances without a Freon Free sticker.

Other materials not covered by the voucher can be found on our Landfill webpage.  These items can be paid for separately as part of a load.

Suggestions and recommendations for Spring Cleanup can be submitted here.
