Vail’s annual spring cleaning activities will conclude this year with the hard to recycle collection event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, May 11 at the Ford Park parking lot. This is a free drop off for residents, property owners and those employed within Vail. This includes the collection of electronic waste (computers, TVs, phones, screens, printers, etc.), household hazardous waste (cleaners, paints, fuels, chemicals, etc.) and paper shredding (documents needing secure destruction). Ineligible items include smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, ammunition, explosives, biomedical waste, sharps, tires and biohazards.
Participants must bring proof of Vail residency or employment within Vail to qualify for the service. Charges may apply for excessive amounts of materials. For questions, call the town’s environmental sustainability office at 970-479-2333.
Vail’s spring cleaning blitz also included the town’s traditional community wide clean up on Sunday, April 29. Funding comes from fees generated through Vail’s “Kick the Bag Habit” program.
