2019 City-Wide Clean-Up Day
Mark your calendars! In conjunction with Historic Preservation Month (May), the annual City-wide Clean-Up Day is planned for Thursday, May 23rd, RAIN OR SHINE. Each year, City of Black Hawk residents, local businesses, casino employees, City Council members, Historic Preservation Commission members and City employees hit the streets of Black Hawk to pick up trash and make the City look its best for everyone’s enjoyment. In addition to trash pickup, many residents take advantage of the City’s offer to pick up large items (such as old furniture) for disposal.
Volunteers will be provided both breakfast and lunch, as well as supplies needed for cleaning up the City. The City is having new Clean-Up Day t-shirts produced for this year’s Clean-Up Day participants to wear. As an added incentive, participants will get the chance at winning one of many gift cards to be raffled off at the end of the event!
If you’d like more information on this fun annual event, please contact Sara Forbes at the City’s Planning Department at 303-582-2223 or As always, we appreciate your efforts in keeping our City clean throughout the year! .
