Residents will not be allowed to put out materials on the curb in front of their homes until the weekend before their side of town is to be picked up. Piles must be separated into trash and scrap metal piles. All loose tree trimming and branches must be bundled and tied for easy pickup. No more then 5 cubic yards per residence will be allowed, no exceptions. Anything larger will not be picked up.
We will pick up furniture and appliances including refrigerators (completely empty and not taped or tied shut), freezers, air conditioners, stoves washers, water heaters, couches, beds and more.
Things we will not pickup include gas or air cylinders, gas tanks, sealed containers, waste oil, antifreeze, paint, paint thinners, liquids of any type, TV’s, copiers, computers and computer monitors and tires of any size.
A flyer is being printed and will be mailed out to every residence in the city the first part of April and it will list all the rules and regulations.
Again, this is a FREE service to Rifle residents. Spring Cleanup did not take place in 2020 due to the pandemic. The pandemic is still with us in 2021 and we will not be able to use correctional facility inmates to make this possible as we have in the past. However, city crews from O&M, Parks, Grounds and Facilities, and Rifle Police have stepped up to supply the labor force to make this happen. Garfield County Commissioners have also stepped up to help and will pay for half the cost of the dump fees for Spring Cleanup at the West Garfield Landfill.
