Town Clean Up Day & Appreciation Party
Join the Town of Frisco, as part of Countywide Clean Up Day, as we clean the streets of Frisco after the snow melts – and get a free lunch accompanied by live music at a gathering after clean up as a “thank you” for your efforts.
Meet on Main Street between 1st Avenue & 2nd Avenue outside of the Frisco Historic Park & Museum. Street address is: 120 Main Street Frisco, CO 80443. Clean up check-in begins at 9:00am and that is where participants can pick up canvas gloves, orange bags and receive area assignments (or just go to their favorite clean up spot). Participants will also receive a lunch ticket, 2 beverage tickets (beer for those 21 and over only) and a door prize ticket.
Also on Saturday, May 21, Summit County Government will be hosting a recycling event at the Summit Stage Bus Barn at the County Commons in Frisco from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Items accepted will include electronics, paint, household hazardous waste (no oil or antifreeze), pharmaceuticals and worn-out clothing (for textile recycling) and shoes. Recycling is free for Summit County residents with proof of residency.
- 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 go a lot faster.
ZERO WASTE PICNIC LUNCH AT THE FRISCO HISTORIC PARK
After clean up, there will be some live music and Town Council members will be grilling up and serving food at the Frisco Historic Park!
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.
Starting at 12:30pm, 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 2016? Hang on to it (if you can stand it) and submit it to see if you win a special prize!
