Spring Cleanup 2022
The City of Glenwood Springs is once again offering vouchers for the South Canyon Landfill. Vouchers were sent by mail to all residences within city limits in late March and are valid for up to one personal sized pickup-truck load of non-hazardous materials and are limited to one per household. Acceptable voucher materials include household garbage, leaves, furniture, mattresses, or brush. The voucher expiration date is Thursday, June 30, 2022. For questions on materials accepted, please contact Liz Mauro at 970-945-5375.
The vouchers must be presented when greeted at the scale with identification to validate the address on the voucher. Vouchers are not redeemable for cash and are only valid for the resident living at the address on the voucher.
For questions about the Landfill Vouchers, contact Public Information Officer Bryana Starbuck at 970-384-6441 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
2021 Spring Cleanup vouchers expired on August 21, 2021.
April 15th-17th, City residents can also drop off brush to the old rodeo fairgrounds. Brush includes leaves and branches with a diameter of three inches or less.
Drop-off is free but is only open to residents of Glenwood Springs. The collection site is not available for use by commercial operators. Leaves can be dropped off at any time of day.
When dropping off leaves, please take them out of the plastic bag and ensure any stones, litter, branches or other debris have been removed from your leaves to prevent equipment damage and worker injuries.
Hazardous Waste Event and Earth Day Celebration
This service will be free to Glenwood Springs residents. No appointment is needed, but participants must provide driver’s license or ID card upon entry. People living outside the city limits of Glenwood Springs will be charged $2.00 per gallon, liquids or solids as estimated by an attendant – check or cash only. If you have questions, please contact Liz Mauro at 970-945-5375.
The annual Hazardous Waste event is scheduled for Saturday, April 16th at the Community Center. This will provide an opportunity to dispose of hazardous waste, paint, and lightbulbs (a full list is available on www.cogs.us/waste). The Hazardous Waste drop off will be part of a larger Earth Day Celebration featuring kids’ activities, information booths, giveaways, food trucks and more. Also, participate in a Vision Glenwood pop-up event and tell us your thoughts on preparing our community for a more sustainable and climate-resilient future.
The hazardous waste drop-off will be accepted from private parties only. No commercial hazardous waste will be accepted. Please no containers larger than 5 gallons, waste oil, or tires. All water-based paints, stains, and clear finishes will be recycled. Other types of waste will be disposed of according to state and federal regulations.
Meanwhile, the City is about to begin the process of pursuing a single-hauler system and is hopeful to work with the future vendor on different options for spring cleanup. The first step is a preliminary work session with City Council on April 7.
