Colorado Gas crew cleans up
trash

In September, the team at Colorado Gas in Castle Rock donned safety vests, grabbed trash bags and hit the road.

The crew, organized by Office Supervisor Sebastian, cleaned an area on Park Street in front of the Colorado Gas office, removing 14 bags of trash along the 1 ½ mile stretch of road.

It had been two years since the group was able to gather for the annual street cleanup project. They were glad to be back. “What a satisfying feeling to be part of a team beautifying the community and environment while also aiding in the creation of safer habitat for all who reside in it,” says Michelle Trout, an operations support specialist.
