Time for spring cleaning May 1-5

Kasey Drummond

Even though we are getting our spring weather of snow and rain right now, it’s time to be thinking about spring cleaning. What we need to do, how do we accomplish it and who is going to help.

The Town of Glenrock is going to start off your spring by offering Big Broom Week: May 1-5. Public Workswill pick up your bundled and bagged debris, old appliances (freezers and refrigerators must be drained by a licensed professional and must include a certificate), furniture, etc. All items must be curbside or placed in the alley.

Big Broom

Week will end on Saturday, May 6, at the Glenrock Landfill with Trees for Trash from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This year’s trees include Nanking cherry, buffaloberry, hackberry, bur oak and Mancharian apricot. All of these trees are perfect for our zone. Some offer fruits for jams, jellies, baking and wine making, while others offer wind-break protection and years of beautiful growing seasons. A flyer will be distributed on May 6.

Spring cleaning is hard work, time consuming and spills over into the summer months. The town has a list of tree trimming contractors that are licensed and insured with the town and we have a list of individuals who can help with mowing, yard work, hauling, etc. Be sure to download Glenrock’s Mobile App for a list of those names- Go to Contractors.

Make your Big Broom appointment today by calling 436-9294 ext. 1, or stop by Town Hall to sign up.
