Spring Clean Up
May 16-19, 2022
The City of Aspen Street Department is hosting its annual Spring Clean-Up event from May 16 to 19, 2022.
Aspen residents who schedule an appointment with the Street Department may have large trash items picked up curbside at their residence. To arrange for a scheduled pick-up, call 970-920-5130 no later than 6:30 a.m. on Monday, May 16, 2022.
Items must be sorted by type, which includes branches and wood of eight feet or less in length, metals, trash, tires, and leaves in compostable bags. All piles must be labeled “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. Alley pick-up service is not possible.
Items not eligible for pick-up include household garbage, construction debris, batteries, paint, oil, refrigerators, hazardous waste, televisions, and any electronics with a memory chip. If these items are left on the curb, they will not be picked up.
To recycle electronic waste, attend the City of E-Waste Collection event on May 21, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marolt Housing Parking lot at 100 Marolt Place. The event is free and open to the public. E-Waste includes anything with a plug or batteries, such as computers, printers, and cell phones.
The Pitkin County Landfill is open to the public with limited services. You can recycle glass, cardboard, paper, and plastic, and drop off compost.
