Greeley’s 49th Annual Spring Clean Up Weekend: April 26 & 27

Greeley’s community-wide annual spring clean-up weekend encourages residents to declutter and help get rid of items that are difficult to throw away. The 2024 Spring Clean-Up will take place Friday, Apr. 26, and Saturday, Apr. 27, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., rain or shine.

The event offers three designated drop-off sites for various types of waste, including household hazardous materials, yard waste and other debris. Commercial dumping is strictly prohibited during clean-up weekend. Participants are required to secure all loose materials with a tarp and present identification or proof of residency, such as a utility bill.

City of Greeley Streets Superintendent Jerry Pickett emphasizes the importance of the event in maintaining the city’s cleanliness and helping residents get rid of their unwanted items. “This event helps keep Greeley clean and looking nice,” Pickett says. “It gets busy, so we ask people to be patient and know we are working hard to get to your vehicle as soon as possible.”

To streamline traffic flow, a check-in station will be added by the staff.
