Letter: Now is the time for community cleanup days

Letter to the editor

Happy Spring! My friend and I spent some time picking up trash in Tabernash on Sunday. I know we’re not the only ones disturbed by the amount of trash collecting on our roadways from Winter Park to Granby. It is getting worse with the increase of visitors and development.

I know there are several businesses and individuals who do their part. Our neighbors in the the Highlands did a great job cleaning up their stretch. However, there is so much more to do.

In the past we have had cleanup days, but I am unaware of any coming up? I am also unsure if it’s up to our local highway departments? There is much out there and it is not easy to dispose of it all without help. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. I’m sure as a community we can get going on this before our busy summer is upon us.

I will ask the same question that Diana Lynn Rau asked Friday in her thoughtful article: Why can’t we respect nature and our beautiful valley?
