TLC Wheat Ridge Clean Up Days are Back This Summer

We all know how bad that last hail storm hit Wheat Ridge and now we have to figure out what to do with all of the debris on our properties! First, you can contact your trash company and let them know you will have extra bags to pick up. Often times, they will pick up the extra bags for free in light of  the recent weather events.  The next option is to bring them to an upcoming TLC Wheat Ridge Clean Up Days event near you.

TLC Wheat Ridge is a partnership between the City of Wheat Ridge and Localworks to improve quality of life and prevent crime in targeted neighborhoods. This year, our popular Clean Up Days have been expanded to serve the whole city with one drop off day in each City Council District.
