Avon Public Works picking up large trash items May 11-16

AVON — The town of Avon’s cleanup week for residents is May 11 — 16. If you have unwanted materials including large items such as washers, dryers or furniture, now is the time to throw them away. Best of all, removal is free.

Starting May 11, Avon residents can contact the Avon Public Works Department to schedule a pickup for unwanted small and large items. A town crew will come to your home to pick up the materials between 8 a.m. — 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. — 2 p.m. Friday. Items must be placed curbside. The staff will take your materials, free of charge, to the county landfill.

The public works department will take almost anything, including yard waste. Exceptions include tires and construction trash and hazardous and toxic waste items such as paints, motor oil, batteries and electronics. Residents may take their old electronic equipment or components (e-waste) to the Eagle County Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Wolcott located by the landfill. Refrigerators and freezers will not be collected, but individuals can take these items to the landfill for recycling as long as the freon has been removed.

A special thanks to Vail Honeywagon, which will be donating a dumpster for use at Avon’s Swift Gulch facility to accommodate the extra yard waste and disposed materials.

Additionally, landfill is offering a punch card for disposing of spring cleanup waste. For additional information on the punch card, 970-328-3470.
