Public works will begin picking up trash May 9; certain rules apply

Dolores will have an Easter Egg Hunt on April 16, and a town clean up May 9-10.

The annual Easter Egg Hunt begins at 10 a.m. at Joe Rowell Park. It is open to kids of all ages, and there will be age-divided hunting areas.

Participants should bring Easter baskets and arrive early to park and make it to staging areas based on age. The Easter Bunny will be there too. The town likes to recycle the plastic eggs, and will have a bin where people can drop them off after the hunt.

Spring cleaning begins

The Dolores town clean up will be May 9-10. There is no charge.

All materials must be on the curb by Monday morning, May 9, or they will not get picked up. Public works will start at one end of town and make it through as much as possible before finishing up Tuesday.

The rules

Residents should leave items for pickup on the curb in front of the house, not next to a fence. Items left in an alley will not be picked up. Loose items should be contained in a bag, box or by tying them together. Cut limbs should be no longer than 8 feet. Vehicles should be out of the way. Items should be separated by type (metal, green waste, etc.) with a wide margin so hauling equipment has room to maneuver.

Items that are not accepted include tires, electronics, appliances (except salvageable metal), paint, chemicals, oil, asbestos, liquids, hazardous or radioactive waste, construction debris, household trash and batteries.

Anyone with questions can call the town at (970) 882-7720.
