Residents of Breckenridge will have an opportunity later this month to get rid of extra trash they have, including yard waste and bulky items, in a city-wide clean-up drive.

Republic Services is partnering with the City of Breckenridge to conduct the clean-up drive April 23-27.

During the week of April 23-27, the extra trash will be picked up on each Breckenridge resident’s normal trash day.

Residents may have unlimited bags or bundled yard waste and up to five bulk items, but no loose trash. Residents should place items at least three feet away from the poly trash carts. A special collection vehicle will collect the bulk items and bagged or bundled yard waste. All items must be at curbside by 6 a.m. on the day of collection. The driver will only collect once per residential unit.

Bulky waste that will be picked up includes stoves, refrigerators (CFS’s must be removed and tagged), water tanks, washing machines, furniture, bundled trees, shrubs or brush trimmings. Any other waste materials must be bundled, securely tied together forming an easily handled package not exceeding three feet in length or 50 pounds in weight.

Items not included in bulk pick up include construction debris, dead animals, hazardous waste, stable matter, chemicals, paints, thinners, tires, batteries, oil and oil filters, antifreeze, drums, asbestos, untreated medical wastes, contaminated soils, sludge, liquids, and automobile/truck engine parts.

Roll off dumpsters will be set up at the City Convenience Station, located on FM 287. The Convenience Station hours for the week of April 23-28 will be Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents may bring their items during these times at no charge.
