City of Breckenridge residents who pay a water bill are now eligible to take one free load of trash/bulk items to the convenience station (dump) each month, Breckenridge Code Enforcement Officer Calvin Chaney announced recently.

Each trash load will be limited to a pickup truck and a bumper-pull trailer per month.

Residents must provide a current water bill from the City of Breckenridge that must match the identification of the person taking the material. At the convenience station, the water bill will be marked and will only be good for one load of trash per month.

Tires will not be allowed, and paint must be dried on sheets of plastic. Building supplies cannot be any longer than 3 feet.

The convenience station is located at 220 Industrial Loop (FM 287). It is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; it is closed on Sundays and Mondays. For more information, call 254-559-5258.
