Avon Town Clean-Up Day Returns on Friday, June 14th
Town Staff to meet volunteers around Avon with trash bags, reflective vests and food and drink vouchers
Avon, CO – Be sure to mark your calendars and come out to celebrate the changing seasons with a little spring cleaning! On Friday, June 14, the Town of Avon will hold the fourth annual Town Clean-Up Day event, giving volunteers a chance to clean up Avon after a long winter season. The Town will be divided into ten sections, with members of Town Staff captaining each section beginning at 5:30 p.m. Staff will provide volunteers with trash bags, reflective vests and a voucher for free tacos and beer on the Avon Performance Pavilion following the event. Volunteers can report directly to the designated meet up locations listed below or meet at the Avon Performance Pavilion at 5:30 p.m. to be assigned and shuttled to a location.
Volunteers will be able to set full trash bags curbside, as Avon Public Works staff will make periodic loops around Town to retrieve and dispose of the filled bags. At 7:00 p.m., all volunteers will head back to the Pavilion Event Terrace for free beers, tacos and entertainment.
