Dumpster Days Event – June 14-16, 2024

It is that time of year again for residents of Knolls Village to clear out the clutter and free up space in your home. Join us for the highly anticipated Dumpster Days event from Friday, June 14, 2024, through Sunday, June 16, 2024, unless the dumpsters fill up earlier. Dispose of unwanted items conveniently and responsibly.

Important Guidelines:

Materials that CANNOT be placed in the dumpsters:

  • Paint Products: Please refrain from disposing of any paint products in the dumpsters. Consider donating usable paint to local organizations or contacting your local recycling center for proper disposal methods.
  • Automotive Products – Oil and Fuel: Due to environmental concerns, oil and fuel should not be placed in the dumpsters. Many auto parts stores and service stations accept used oil for recycling.
  • Chemicals – Garden, Household, and Swimming Pool: Proper disposal of chemicals is essential to protect the environment. Contact your local waste management authority for guidance on disposing of these items safely.
  • Electronics – TVs, Radios, Computer Equipment, etc.: Electronics contain valuable components and hazardous materials. Consider recycling them through specialized electronics recycling programs or donating them if they are still in working condition.
  • Tires: Tires are not accepted in the dumpsters due to their size and composition. Many tire retailers offer tire disposal services or recycling options.
  • Asbestos: Asbestos is a hazardous material that requires professional handling. Please consult with a licensed asbestos removal contractor for safe disposal methods.
  • Appliances with Freon: Appliances containing Freon, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, require proper disposal to comply with environmental regulations. Contact your local waste management authority for assistance with disposing of these appliances safely.

Additional Reminders:

  • Small Garbage: The dumpsters are not for regular garbage that can go out with the regular garbage collection. Do not put regular garbage that would otherwise fit in your trash container, this takes up valuable space!
  • Batteries, Tires, and Propane Tanks: Last year, we had many inappropriate items such as batteries, tires, and propane tanks with gas in them thrown into the dumpsters. Please ensure these items are disposed of properly through specialized disposal programs.
  • Donation Items: Last year, many items thrown away that could have been donated to the nearest donation center. Consider donating usable items to Arc Thrift Stores, located at 7450 S University Blvd Suite 100, Centennial, CO 80122.
  • Scrap Metals: Scrap metals are valuable and should be recycled. We will attempt to have a separate collection area for scrap metal, just as we did last year. Scrap metals would include things like bed frames, bicycles, BBQ grills and appliances without Freon.

To make the most of the available dumpster space, we kindly request that you break down large items such as furniture and cardboard boxes.

Overflow Plan:

In the event that the your nearest dumpster is full, we have made arrangements for additional dumpsters throughout the community. Look for signs indicating the alternative dumpster locations.

Special Disposal Service:

For items listed above that cannot be placed in dumpsters, Waste Management provides home pick-up of Household Generated Special Materials.
