For the third year in a row the Greenhorn Valley Chamber of Commerce has sponsored a Community Clean-Up Day, and for the third year in a row the amount of trash and trees has exceeded the projections of the group.

The event was supposed to run from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday but at 7:00 a.m. trucks filled with trash were already lined up. By 8:30 a.m. the three dumpsters were nearly full. About an hour and a half later the two chipper trucks with crew members supplied by San Isabel Electric were also full.

Each year the Chamber has learned from the year before. Last year some people dumped after the event was over leading to increased cost for clean up and some real safety issues when someone dumped a refrigerator with its doors on and a dead animal carcass.
