Pickup during the month of June
The City of Alta will have a free pickup of junk during the month of June for city residents.
The following items should be on the curb by 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 4: all appliances, except those containing a refrigerant (refrigerators, freezers, etc., that are disconnected and properly degassed will be picked up), objects primarily made of metal, such as bicycles, lawn mowers, grills, etc. and furniture items such as sofas, mattresses and televisions.
Wooden items will be picked up the following week on June 11. These items for pickup include tree limbs and other wooden objects. The City asks that residents limit the length of these items to four or five feet.
Tires, batteries and construction and demolition materials will NOT be picked up by city crews. Liquids such as paint, chemicals, waste oil, antifreeze and other hazardous materials may be disposed of free of charge during the household toxic waste cleanups that are held in Buena Vista County every several months. For more information on these cleanups, contact the Rowley Recycle Center at 732-7171.
This cleanup is intended for residents of the City of Alta only. No articles will be accepted from non-residents. Those with questions may contact City Hall at 200-4000.
