COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado Springs’ two City-owned cemeteries, Evergreen and Fairview, will conduct their tri-annual clean-ups now through March 15. Families and friends are encouraged to remove any items they wish to save from gravesites and headstones. The March clean-up is the time when decorations and other holiday items are removed from the cemetery, along with tarnished, unsightly, sun-bleached or damaged containers or flowers.
Typically, the cemeteries allow artificial flowers in vases or attached to stones to remain. Their placement must not hinder mowing or other cemetery maintenance. Additional information about allowable gravesite decorations is available at www.coloradosprings.gov/cemeteries.
For more information, call Evergreen Cemetery (1005 Hancock Expressway) at
719-385-6251 or Fairview Cemetery (1000 26th Street), at 719-385-6251.
