Trash Crush rescheduled for Aspen’s Northstar Preserve

The inaugural Trash Crush to pickup garbage along Highway 82 at Northstar Nature Preserve has been rescheduled due to anticipated weather Tuesday.

The event was moved to Monday, June 6, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, according to co-organizer Erik Skarvan.

Skarvan and Todd Shaver teamed with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway Program to hold the event. Meat & Cheese will provide a lunch to participants after their work is done.

The event is open to anyone that can help. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot at Northstar Nature Preserve, 2 miles east of the Aspen City Market. They should bring gloves. Safety vests will be provided.

“The goals of the volunteer event are to pick up the litter along the nature preserve, raise awareness of the beauty that we live in, and give something back to the place we love so much,” said an email from Skarvan.
