Thinking about spring cleaning? The Town of Paonia's annual Spring Clean-up Days will be held May 20-24. In-town residents are encouraged to gather their unusable items from yards, garages and alleyways and set them out on their regularly scheduled trash collection day. Items should be piled near trash cans without blocking access to them.
Tires, furniture, household appliances (no freon) and building materials; yard maintenance equipment and other items with small motors will all be accepted. Lumber and yard clippings must be bundled in 5-foot lengths. For the safety of town employees, car batteries and paint cans filled with kitty litter should be placed separate from other items. Flammable materials will NOT be picked up; a $50 charge for each electronics item will be assessed.
For those who miss the regular trash collection day, from May 17-28, dumpsters will be available at Paonia Town Park. A brochure is available at Paonia Town Hall and at townofpaonia.com, or call 527-4101 with questions.
