ANGEL FIRE — Dig out your outdoor work clothes and prepare to roll up your sleeves for Angel Fire’s village-wide cleanup hosted by Angel Fire Proud (AFP) 9 – 11:30 a.m., Saturday (Oct. 7) — rain or shine.

Neighbors of all ages can join hands with local businesses, community groups, village leadership and staff to boost volunteerism and civic engagement across the village and improve the quality of life for all residents and visitors.

“It’s a chance to spruce up our community ‘backyard’ before the snow falls,” said AFP Chair Bill Humbert.  Clean-up Day is held every Fall and Spring. 

Also, area residents with proof of residency can dump appliances (no refrigerators), slash, mattresses and more for free at the Angel Fire Collection Center that Sat. 9 a.m. – noon.  No tires, paint or commercial and demolition waste. Larger items and construction material will be assessed a fee. 

Once again, there will be a prize for the Weirdest Piece of Trash. The winner gets a gift certificate from Enchanted Circle Brewing.
