SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND OF SUBJECT MATTER:

The Town of Erie Department of Public Works hosted the 13th annual Spring Clean Up at the Leon A. Wurl Service Center and Denver Regional Landfill on Saturday, May 5, 2018.  The event is offered as a service to the Town of Erie residents, allowing disposal of a variety of items at no expense. This year’s clean up went very well with over 1,500 loads dropped off between the landfill and the Service Center. Town of Erie staff assisted residents with directions, confirming residency, ensuring compliance with landfill regulations and assisted residents with unloading at the Service Center.

 

                     Landfill - There were 1,082 loads (181 autos, 752 pickups, 149 trailers) dropped off at the landfill.  This compares to 886 loads dropped off in spring 2017.

                     Goodwill of Denver and ARC Thrift Stores - There were 55 loads of electronics and 126 loads of household items dropped off at the Service Center, for a total of 181 loads.  This compares to 169 loads dropped off in spring 2017.

                     Scrap Metal - There were 230 loads dropped off at the Service Center. This compares to 285 loads dropped off in spring 2017.

                     Prescription Bags - There were 30 prescriptions bags handed out at the Service Center. This compares to 40 bags in spring 2017.

 

A total of 1,523 loads this year compared to 1,285 loads last spring. 

 

The Department of Public Works will host the 13th annual Fall Clean Up on September 8, 2018, and hopes to continue partnering with vendors for this event as well as offering paper shredding services.
