Get ready for town Clean Up Week, May 13-18

Special to The SUN

Mayor Ross Aragon and the Town of Pagosa Springs welcome all town residents to participate in the annual clean up week, May 13-18.

This program is only for residential properties in town.

A change to this year’s program is that a town crew will not pick up refuse left curbside. Residents must take refuse to the Town of Pagosa Springs Maintenance Shop, located on South 5th Street.

The town will not accept household trash, tires, hazardous materials, engines, batteries, appliances with Freon or building/construction materials.

JUNK AIDE JUNK REMOVAL, LLC. vehicles can be coordinated by calling Rita Prokop at Town Hall, 264-4151, Ext. 238. Not all vehicles are guaranteed for removal. Proof of ownership will be required.

Hilltop Cemetery cleanup is scheduled for May 20-24. No Dumpsters will be provided at the cemetery.

As in past years, the Town of Pagosa Springs Police Department will issue nuisance notices to property owners who have junk or litter on their premises after the annual cleanup week is complete, so please participate in Clean Up Week 2013.

If a resident is unable to take items to Dumpsters due to a hardship, they can call Town Hall at 264-4151, Ext. 238, to coordinate assistance. Town staff will confirm all hardships and, if they find a hardship case valid, will coordinate crew assistance with the resident present during pickup.

Questions, comments? Call Town Hall at 264-4151, Ext. 238.

Let’s keep Pagosa Springs beautiful!
