Town Clean Up
- Date: -
Feeling a little cooped up? Get outside and make a difference! The Towns of Blue River, Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, and Silverthorne are calling for volunteers to help clean up Summit County before summer. As the snow recedes, a season’s worth of lost mittens, abandoned dog poop bags and misplaced treasures reveal themselves, making spring cleaning a necessity. This year’s cleanup will take place May 9-17 to allow for plenty of time and space for proper physical distancing.
Cleanup supplies can be picked up May 9-17 from designated areas in each Town, or personal supplies can be used if preferred. Volunteers are encouraged to pick a favorite area near their home that needs attention rather than receiving an assigned area. Filled trash bags (50lbs or less) should be placed visibly near the side of the road.
Clean Up supplies can be picked up at:
- Red Buffalo Coffee and Tea
- Silverthorne Recreation Center
After filling their trash bags, community members can post a photo of their Town Clean Up experience on Instagram by May 17 for a chance to win gift cards from local businesses.One photo entry per person. Winners will be notified by each Town after the contest has closed.

Summit County Resource Allocation Park (SCRAP) and the High Country Conservation Center (HC3) work in conjunction with the towns to provide support for the countywide Town Clean Up. The SCRAP’s Annual Hard-to-Recycle Event scheduled for May 16 has been postponed. Residents should keep their household hazardous waste and electronic waste at home for now. When social distancing requirements change in the future, residents will be able to take these items to the SCRAP for recycling. For additional information regarding household hazardous waste and recycling, please visit HighCountryConservation.org or call (970) 668-5703.
