Aurora Cleanup Day – May 20, 2017
Disposing of large household waste properly is often a challenge, but Aurora Cleanup Day can help.

Residents may bring their large household waste ­­- items that are not appropriate for curbside pickup - to one of six locations from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 20. Each location will have a roll-off dumpster and will be staffed by city staff and volunteers. One site is located in each council ward:
Ward I:            Lowry Park, 1001 Dayton St.
Ward II:
           Northeast corner of South Airport Boulevard and East Alameda Drive

Ward III:          Havana Machine, 840 S. Havana St.
Ward IV:
          Ecotech Institute, 1400 S. Abilene St.
Ward V:
           Griswold Water Purification Facility, 14201 E. Hampden Ave.
Ward VI:
          Red-tailed Hawk Park, 23701 E. Hinsdale Way

This free event is open to Aurora residents only, and participants must show proof of residency with a driver’s license, utility bill or other identification with an Aurora address.

This event is designed for disposal of residential items that are not appropriate for curbside pickup. The following items will not be accepted: refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or other items with Freon; construction debris such as concrete, sod, dirt, rocks and bricks; car parts such as tires; electronics; household chemicals and paint; and hazardous waste. Disposal resources for many of these types of waste can be found online at AuroraGov.org/KeepAuroraClean.
Volunteers are needed to assist city staff at the Cleanup Day sites. Contact Jamie LaDuke at 303.739.7248 or volunteer@auroragov.org if you are interested. For questions about Aurora Cleanup Day, go to AuroraGov.org/KeepAuroraClean or contact Neighborhood Services at 303.739.7287.
