Montrose, CO — The City of Montrose continues its annual Spring Cleanup tradition by providing disposal and recycling services from a single collection point on June 19 and 20.
Residents are invited to bring cleanup items to the drop-off site located off the San Juan Bypass (U.S. Highway 50), directly across the street from the Sunshine Peak apartment complex. Signs will help direct residents to the drop-off location that will be open each day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The annual event is normally held in April to coincide with spring, however, due to suggested social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, the cleanup was postponed to June.
