Berthoud’s semi-annual Town Clean-up Day will be Saturday, May 18, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Turner Middle School parking lot located at 950 Massachusetts Ave. The service is specifically provided to those who live in Berthoud, and residents should plan on bringing a utility bill or personal identification that includes your address in order to participate.

There will be dumpsters available for household solid waste and yard waste, along with other recycling bins available on a first-come-first-serve basis. E-waste recycling will also be available.

Items that will be accepted for disposal include; general yard debris, any metal, lawn mowers, bikes, chain link, pipe and barbeques. There will also be document shredding available. The town website encourages those bringing documents to keep them in containers that can easily be emptied into the paper shredder. Card board, including cardboard boxes can not be shredded. Large items including sofas and chairs that are not in good enough condition to be donated to organizations like Berthoud Habitat for Humanity ReStore located at 157 Mountain Avenue, can also be dropped off.

Tree branches and limbs that are larger than four inches in diameter will need to be dropped off at a different location, 231 South First Street, more specifically on the west side of South First Street between East Nebraska Avenue and East County Road 6C.

Items that will not be accepted include tires, hazardous materials, including paint, and other types of chemicals and appliances that contain refrigerant.
