Free yard waste roundup for Golden residents

The Town of Golden is offering a one-day free curb-side yard waste roundup on Friday Oct. 25.

As all Golden residents know, yard waste can no longer be collected as part of your weekly garbage pick-up service. Doing so will result in it not being emptied.

But for Golden residents who receive weekly and bi-weekly curb-side waste and recycling collection services, the Town of Golden is pleased to announce a one-day only free curb-side yard waste roundup for you on Friday Oct. 25.

This service is for yard waste only – organic debris that includes grass clippings, leaves, tree cones, tree branches (no stumps) shrubs, bushes, and parts thereof, not exceeding 8″ in diametre. No other type of waste will be accepted, including construction wood waste.

Place your yard waste in containers (including regular green waste containers, but not your blue recycling container), bags, or bundles.
