Town Clean Up Day & Appreciation Party

Join the Town of Frisco on Saturday, May 18, 2019, as we clean the streets, sidewalks and parks of Frisco after the snow melts – and get a free lunch at a post clean up gathering as a “thank you” for your efforts.

THE LOWDOWN

Meet on Main Street between 1st Avenue & 2nd Avenue outside of the Frisco Historic Park & Museum at 120 Main Street Frisco, CO 80443. Clean up check-in begins at 9:00am, and that is where participants can pick up canvas gloves, safety vests, orange bags and receive area assignments (or just go to their favorite clean up spot).  Participants will also receive 2 beverage tickets (beer for those 21 and over only) and a door prize ticket.

Frisco Starbucks has graciously donated coffee, and there will be donuts as well to start the day off right.

TIPS

  • Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and comfortable walking shoes.
  • Pick out a spot you see or walk every day and plan to do clean up there or be assigned to a location.
  • Bring lots of family and friends – it makes the morning more fun.

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION BBQ

After clean up,  Town Council members will be grilling up and serving food at the Frisco Historic Park! HighSide Brewing has donated beer for the BBQ.

All food waste will be composted and all supplies will be recyclable when available – so there will be minimal waste going to the landfill after this event.  Frisco strives to be environmentally friendly with our events and walks the walk with our Zero Waste picnic lunch which is a “thank you” to volunteers.

DOOR PRIZES

Several local businesses have been kind enough to donate some amazing gift certificates and prizes to be given away at the event as a “thank you” to lucky volunteers!

Think you picked up the “Grossest”, “Most Unique” or “Most Valuable” item in Frisco on Clean-Up Day in 2019?  Hang on to it (if you can stand it) and submit it to see if you win a special prize!

Shoreline Cleanup

New for 2019- the Dillon Reservoir Shoreline Clean Up is being hosted by Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, Summit County Open Space & Trails, the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Committee and Summit Shuttle Water Taxi.

“Participants will remove trash along the shores of Dillon Reservoir, helping to protect one of Summit County’s most stunning recreational resources,” said Jason Lederer of Summit County Open Space & Trails. “The water level is low right now, so we have a narrow window of opportunity to grab litter that’s now exposed, before the water comes back up during spring runoff.”

Countywide Electronics, Textile, Household Hazardous Waste and Pharmaceuticals Disposal Event

Need to get that old TV out of the house? What about old cleaners and automotive fluids sitting in the garage?
