GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Monday morning marked the beginning of Grand Junction's "Spring Clean-Up" initiative, where residents are encouraged to leave their trash out on the curb an city crews will remove it for them.
The crews had to deal with a little adversity to start the campaign, with rain falling steadily all day. Some residents were worried their trash wouldn't get picked up, but a little rain never stopped this crew.
"We're still out there, we're still picking up trash," says street maintenance supervisor Dan Thorne, "It's causing a few problems with the drainage but we're still doing our jobs".
City officials don't expect delays to the program, and everyone's trash will still be collected.
