It's that time of year here in GreeleyThe birds are chirping, flowers and trees are in bloom and piles of junk that need dumped at Island Grove.

The 39th Annual Spring Clean-Up Weekend for Greeley residents only, and you will be asked for ID, is this Saturday and Sunday. Cars and regular sized trucks are only $10 and please note there is a 4 tire limit (free) per day and $2 for each additional tire. 

Also, makes sure you go to the right place. I have learned the hard way that it's easier to find out first where you need to be. Site 2 is the one that threw me off a few years ago and electronics and computers are NOT accepted during the clean-up weekend.

  • Site 1 - General household debris, appliances and scrap metals (11th Ave North of the Poudre river; enter of H street)
  • Site 2 - Tree limbs etc. Basically all organic waste (8th St a mile East of Hwy 85 on the South side)
  • Site 3 - Hazardous waste, paint, batteries, pesticides, oil, etc. (1311 N 17th Ave. - 2 blocks North of Site 1) Site 3 is FREE - 5 gallon containers or less

1 ton trucks, and larger, and trailers must use the North landfill. Coupons are available at City Hall (1000 10th St.) for $30 that will allow you direct access to the landfill but there is a limit of 2.
