City of Lakewood residents will have the opportunity to clear out unwanted appliances, furniture, electronics and other items from their homes and get those items reused or recycled during Lakewood’s free citywide Cleanup Day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Jeffco Stadium on 500 Kipling St.
It is free to drop off items except for televisions, that require a $30 fee each, cash or credit cards accepted.
Residents need to bring proof that they live in Lakewood and allow plenty of time to drop off their items as Cleanup Day is very popular. Residents will enter the site from Kipling St. and will be directed to exit onto the 6th Ave. frontage road. Last entry will be at 2 p.m.
Regular recyclable items such as plastic bottles, newspaper, glass, cardboard and cans will not be accepted, and can be recycled with resident’s curbside pickup. Yard waste including trees, branches and shrubs can be taken to Jefferson County slash drop-off locations. Slash locations will be open Thursday through Sunday at most locations. For more information and slash collection locations, visit Jeffco.us/Slash.
