Fall Trash Bash (Dumpsters Only)
one-carload per household limit
Date: Saturday, September 26
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Location: The Grange Parking Lot (3692 Meadows Blvd., Castle Rock, CO)
The Meadows Neighborhood Company has created a second Trash Bash event for residents to dispose of extra trash at their home. This event is slightly different than the Spring Trash Bash event. We will not have electronic recycle, paper shredding, medication drop off or bike recycle. This event will only have dumpsters.
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.
We will have traffic control at the intersection of The Grange entrance will remove cones and begin allowing cars in at 10:00 am. Cars may line up in the “left turning lane” into The Grange prior to the event. That will be the only entrance line into The Grange.
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-car load per household limit. If we reach capacity at a drop off station we may not be able to accept your items. Once the dumpsters are full, we will have to block off access to the event.
Below is a list of our drop off stations with what we can and cannot accept.
We will not allow drop-offs outside of the scheduled event times. Cameras are in use and violators will be fined.
The Grange parking lot will not be available for "waiting" as we need to leave it open for vendors to arrive.
Items we CAN accept
Trash – There will be several large trash bins available to accommodate your general trash. We can accept items such as old furniture and mattresses along with general trash. Information on what can’t be thrown away in these bins is listed below. You must unload your own items and put into the dumpsters so they are completely inside the dumpster. Do not leave any items on the ground or hanging over the edge of the container.
Recycling – A large recycling container will be on site where you can recycle most of your household items. All cardboard must be broken down and flattened before it is put in this container. Information on what can’t be thrown away in this bin is listed below.
Items We Cannot Accept
Electronics: This is not an electronic recycling event. Electronics, including TV’s cannot go into the dumpsters. Electronic recycling is only offered at the Spring Trash Bash event.
Paper Shredding: Paper shredding is only offered at the Spring Trash Bash event.
Additional Items Not Accepted: Hazardous waste or chemicals of any kind, soil, sod, rocks, uncut or untied branches (all branches must be cut into 4 foot lengths or less and tied together in a bundle no more than 12 inches in diameter; and leaves and grass clippings need to be bagged), bricks, concrete, building materials, auto parts, liquid waste, fire extinguishers,propane tanks, microwaves, refrigerators or freezers with freon, paint, stains, insecticides, tires, and car batteries.
Donation Items: Due to donation trucks/companies not offering their special event services anymore, we will not be able to accept donation items. Castle Rock now has a Goodwill store just a few miles up the road. If you have donation items, please plan to take them to the Goodwill store. 335 Barranca Dr., Castle Rock, CO 80104. Due to COVID, Goodwill may be closed or have restrictions.
This is not a chemical roundup. If you have paint, chemicals or related items, please visit https://www.tchd.org/250/Household-Chemical-Roundups for the list of local community roundups.
There may be other items that are not accepted at the discretion of the Meadows Neighborhood Company.
Special Note: Due to demand of this event and the growing community, we have a one-carload-per-household limit. This event is intended to be used for the benefit of the Meadows residents. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is “abusing the system” which would result in our resources not being available for everyone. This determination is at the discretion of the Meadows Neighborhood Company.
