Letters to the editors
People turned out in droves on Saturday with pick-up trucks, trailers, cars and vans loaded with trash for the Town clean-up. The Town of Kremmling provided four dumpsters, which was one more than last year, and the dumpsters filled up quickly. We were able to accommodate about 65- 70 loads of trash before the dumpsters were completely full, and we had to start turning people away.
For those of you that were turned away, I apologize and wish we would’ve been able to help everybody. I spoke with a representative from The Trash Company and they will take your larger items for a fee. Or you may want to cut down larger items and dispose of them through normal trash pick-up. There is also a transfer station in Granby that will accept trash for a fee. You would need to contact them for hours of operation and fees.
I wanted to extend a heartfelt thanks to Dennis Carpenter of Tri-River Ace Hardware for providing a place to host the Town Clean Up over the years and also provide a place for Kremmling to go “green” by recycling paper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, glass, paint, stain and other products. It truly does make a difference!
The new owners of the property, Erik and Cassie Woog, were very accommodating by letting the Town Clean Up continue on their newly acquired property on what was probably one of the worst weekends for them as they were finalizing the exchange of ownership.
I would have truly been lost without the help of Richard Terwilliger who was on hand to assist with unloading, breaking
down bigger items to smaller pieces, directing traffic, and supervising to make sure that the dumpsters were being utilized to their full capacity. We honestly could’ve used about 6 more Richard’s at the Town Clean Up. Maybe next year we will have more volunteers.
Jim, Jennifer, and Samantha Miller were onsite from Blue Life Ltd to help recycle and dispose of electronics for a small fee. Blue Life Ltd. is open year round to dispose of electronics at your convenience, and their phone number is 970-281-2444.
Chris Russell and his crew Kelly Dale, Robbi Dale, Brandon Dale and Jhaden Cowan not only filled a flatbed and a half full of scrap metal, but also assisted people with unloading their trash in the dumpsters. Thank you so much for going above and beyond what you were there for!
The Grand County Advocates for providing lunch at the town clean-up.
The Town Clean Up provides an opportunity for Kremmling citizens to clean up their yards and make Kremmling the sparkling diamond that it can be! Thank you all for your efforts!
