Rifle’s spring cleanup continues

Rifle Operations and Maintenance employee Tyler Laroque lifts a large bundle of tree limbs into the bucket of a backhoe on Buckeye Court in east Rifle Wednesday, April 27. Rifle’s spring cleanup will resume May 2-5, covering residences west of Railroad Avenue and Highway 13, as well as those south of Interstate 70. Rifle Public Works Superintendent Bobby O'Dell reminds residents to separate metals and acceptable appliances from other garbage to reduce the number of trips for city staff. He also asks that residents consolidate piles as much as possible.

Unacceptable items:

Gas or air cylinders; gas tanks; sealed containers, waster oil; antifreeze; paint; pesticides; paint thinners; liquids of any type; TVs; copiers; computers/monitors; microwaves; tires

Acceptable items:

Brush and tree limbs less than four feet long (must be neatly stacked and tied); wood; metal; furniture, appliances (other than microwaves)

Reminders:

Piles are limited to one pile no greater than five cubic yards per address — no community piles.

Place items curbside no sooner than 72 hours before the scheduled start of cleanup. City crews will not go onto private property to pick up items, which should be kept separate from regular trash containers so as not to interrupt with regular trash service.

Do not place items against walls, fences or in landscaped areas.
