The 2018 Great Denver Cleanup Event has ended.

Please visit our Recycling Directory for a list of local drop-off locations for all types of materials.

The 2018 Great Denver Cleanup was a hugely successful event! Thank you to all Denver residents that took the time to bring us their hard-to-recycle items on Saturday, June 9th. Collected that this year's event:

  • 44 tons of trash
  • 17 tons of yard debris for composting
  • Nearly 1 ton of windows and glass panes for recycling
  • 114 cubic yards of donatable and reusable items (furniture, clothing, etc.)
  • 2 tons of cardboard for recycling
  • 95 mattresses and box springs

We hope you feel good about recycling this material and enjoying your now cleaner yards and garages.
