Greeley Spring Clean Up Is Family Tradition – Brian’s Blog
This weekend is the 38th annual Greeley Spring Clean Up Weekend Friday and Saturday from 9-7. This is such an awesome opportunity. Every year we haul out a truckload or 2 of things that are just taking up space in the garage or yard. Charley Barnes and I have been doing this for years together as well. It is a tradition for us and my family. I have my pile set up the backyard just waiting for this weekend. Here is what you will need to know from the City of Greeley website and remember this is for Greeley residents only.
Clean-up Site: Clean up your garage, basement, alley, etc., and bring the debris to the drop site at 11th Avenue, north of the Poudre River (enter off of H Street); $10.00 per load. You can also recycle the following separated materials at this site: old appliances, vehicle tires up to 17" in diameter, iron and metal. A total of 4 tires may be included in regular loads per day with no additional fees; however, there will be an additional $2 fee per tire over that limit. Tires over 17" will not be accepted. Freon will be safely removed from all refrigeration appliances free of charge.
One-ton trucks and larger or trailers with more than 1 axle must use the North Weld Land fill unless it is tree limbs or unpainted wood. A $30.00 coupon for each load (Limit of 2) that allows direct access to the landfill must be purchased at City Hall, 1000 10th Street, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. M-F by April 26th or at the H street Site during Clean-Up weekend.
