The Town of Frisco is participating in the Countywide Town Clean Up Day on Saturday, May 18, 2019. This is a chance for citizens to get together to clean up neighborhoods, parks, open spaces, business areas and trails around Frisco in anticipation of summer. Volunteer check in is at 9:00am at the Frisco Historic Park on Frisco Main Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues.
During the volunteer check in at 9:00am, there will be coffee provided by Frisco Starbucks and donuts. At that time, volunteers will also receive gloves, orange trash bags and tickets for door prize drawings, lunch and free beers or non-alcoholic drinks. Volunteers may ask to be assigned to a clean up area or they may select an area in Frisco that they feel would benefit from their efforts.
Post clean up, volunteers are invited back to the Frisco Historic Park for a volunteer appreciation BBQ with burgers and hot dogs grilled up by Frisco Town Council and beer donated by HighSide Brewing. The volunteer appreciation BBQ will also include volunteer door prizes and awards from appreciative local merchants for the most valuable, most unique and the ickiest finds of the day. DJ Landry will be supplying the tunes during the BBQ.
New 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 must sign up for the shoreline clean up by visiting fdrd.org. Anyone participating in the Shoreline Clean Up may attend the cleanup volunteer appreciation BBQ in the town of their choosing, as a thank you for their efforts.
“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
Summit County Resource Allocation Park (SCRAP) works in conjunction with Frisco and other Summit County towns to provide support for the Countywide Clean Up Day, and again this year they are also helping citizens clean up their own homes, medicine cabinets and garages as well. Personal household wastes are not accepted at individual town clean up days; however, Summit County is hosting a free electronics, pharmaceutical, textile and household hazardous waste disposal and recycling event on Saturday, May 18 from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Summit Stage Bus Barn, at 0222 County Shops Road, next to the County Commons in Frisco. For a list of accepted items and for additional information, participants may visit High Country Conservation Center’s website at HighCountryConservation.org or call (970) 668-5703.
