Free Trash Vouchers Part of Spring Cleanup

Local officials and businesses are once again gearing up for the annual Spring Clean-Up and Canon Proud Campaign.  A limited number of trash vouchers for free disposal of household trash, furniture, construction debris, brush, logs, leaves and yard waste will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to Cañon City and Fremont County residents beginning on March 21st and ending on April 30th.  Trash vouchers are good for free disposal of ½ ton (one regular pick-up truck bed) at Twin Enviro’s “Phantom Landfill” at 2500 Fremont County Road 67 (north of the airport), Penrose, 372-6671.  (Amounts of trash in excess of ½ ton will be charged extra on site.)  Hours of operation are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Cañon City residents may pick up a voucher from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at City Hall, 128 Main Street.  Persons living in unincorporated areas of Fremont County may pick up a voucher from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday in Room 106 of the Fremont County Administration Building, 615 Macon Avenue.   Proof of residency is required when obtaining a voucher.  Only one voucher will be issued per household.  Free disposal will end on April 30, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.  All loads must be covered, and no commercial haulers or contractors qualify for these vouchers. The City of Florence will sponsor their city wide cleanup in late April.

Partners in this event include Twin Enviro Services, R.D. Recycling, Junk Masters, and Call it Gone Metal Recyclers.  In addition to the trash disposal vouchers, the following partners will accept recycling, appliances, vehicles, and specific metals; please contact them directly if their services are desired:
