Spring Clean-Up

Disposing of Materials

The City will again host a Spring Cleanup for Cherry Hills Village residents this year. Dumpsters will be provided for citizens to dispose of their unwanted trash and rubbish. Electronics and paint recycling will be available only one day this year. Please do not bring these items except during the designated drop off time. All other hazardous materials will need to be disposed of through the door to door program.


Dumpsters

Dumpsters for household rubbish and trash will be available from May 6 - May 14, 2017. The City is unable to accept large appliances, so please do not bring these items to the site. You may be asked to provide proof of residency as you drop off items, so please be prepared to show a drivers license with a Cherry Hills Village address on it if asked.

The trash dumpsters will be located east of the maintenance shop just past the main entrance to the Village Center. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of rubbish not included with normal curbside service. Please note: the City will be UNABLE to accept the following items for disposal in the dumpsters: paint, electronics, tires, appliances, oil, antifreeze, fuels and any hazardous materials. Depositing these items in the dumpsters may jeopardize the future of this program.


Metal

A large bin for scrap metal will be available. The City will accept scrap metal and metal appliances such as washers and dryers, but will be unable to accept refrigerators.

There will also be a designated area for recyclable metal items.


Trees & Branches

There will be a designated area near the dumpsters for all tree branches and shrubbery. Please do not put these items in the dumpsters. City Staff will be chipping and recycling these materials.


Community Shred Day

Two trucks will be available for faster service. Identity theft is a problem so have your sensitive documents shredded. This is your opportunity to empty all those old personal files in your house. Residents can protect themselves against identity theft by shredding any personal documents confidentially and securely, at no charge.


Electronics & Paint Recycling

The City will once again accept electronics and paint for recycling, but on a limited basis due to escalating regulations and cost. Staff will be on hand to help unload your acceptable items. Only paint, small appliances, and electronics including TV’s 19 inches and smaller will be accepted. The cost is too substantial for the City to accept larger items and all hazardous chemicals and products. Please be respectful of these restrictions.


Other Hazardous Household Chemicals

The City has contracted with Waste Management / Curbside Recycling, Inc. to do a door-to-door recycling program for hazardous waste. Residents will be required to pay a $20 co-pay and may use the service only once per year. Funds are limited and the program will be suspended once all the funds have been used, so please use the service wisely. We encourage you to work with your neighbors and pool hazardous waste to maximize the available funds. View a full description of the program. Waste Management / Curbside can be contacted directly at 800-449-7587.
