Spring Cleaning Made Easy

Spring is here and The Meadows Neighborhood Company has created an event to make your spring cleaning much easier! The event is free but it is only open to Meadows Residents. Participants will need to bring their key fob or driver’s license with a Meadows address to verify their residency. It will be held in The Grange parking lot and we will have multiple stations available to handle all of your spring cleaning needs. Please note the event is on a first come, first served basis. Due to demand of this event and the growing community, we have a one-carload per-household limit. If we reach capacity at a drop off station we may
not be able to accept your items.
Below is a list of our drop off stations with what we can and cannot accept.
Paper Shredding – A mobile paper shredding truck will be on site where you can watch your documents get shredded. There is a limit of 3 banker’s sized cardboard boxes per person.
Medication Drop Off Site – The Castle Rock Police Department will be hosting a booth where you can safely dispose of prescription medications, over the counter medications, ointments, and pet medications. They cannot accept liquids, radioactive medications, needles, aerosol cans, thermometers, or illegal drugs. They suggest that you place medications in a plastic baggie and that you mark out your name and identifying information on the prescription bottles.
Electronic Recycling – A truck will be available that can recycle old electronics such as computers, laptops, printers, and cell phones. This station cannot accept T.V.’s or large appliances.

Trash – There will be several large trash bins available to accommodate your general trash. Information on what can’t be thrown away in these bins is listed below.
