Valley To Spruce Up Saturday

highway-clean-up

Jackson Hole’s 45th Annual Spring Clean-Up Day takes place Saturday. Each spring Jackson Hole non-profit organizations, businesses, Wyoming Adopt-A-Highway agencies, and hundreds of volunteers hit the streets and highways throughout Jackson Hole with garbage bags in hand to clean up debris left behind as the winter snow melts. Volunteers will be deployed from the Jackson Town Square, the Wilson Community Center and the Hoback Store at 9:00 am.  Later, Clean-up Day Coordinator Bob Norton says trucks, provided by the Wyoming Department of Transportation, the Town of Jackson, Evans Construction, and Westwood Curtis will collect bags of roadside trash left by the clean-up volunteers.  Norton says the objective is to pick up all the winter accumulation of litter along the streets, roads and pathways in Teton County.  He says each year, the organizers welcome groups to come out and help pick up all the accumulation of trash.  Norton says it is always fun to hear stories about the most unusual thing the teams found along the roads in their clean-up efforts.  The event begins with coffee and pastries at 9:00 am and will be followed by a free barbecue lunch for volunteers on Town Square from 11:30 am-12:30 pm.  Compostable bags are being distributed to homeowners for their organic yard waste. This marks the 45th year the community clean-up event is being conducted in Jackson Hole.

  • Towing with a half-ton - July 31, 2014
    I’ve been hauling horses with either a three-quarter-ton or a one-ton truck for about the past 10 years, and I’ve gotten kind of spoiled by the towing power of those old Ford diesels. Even with a heavy load cruising along behind me, I’d sometimes forget I was pulling a trailer. But when the F-350 started […]
