OT: bulk item disposal?

I have some large items I need to dispose of. Some broken cabinets, 245024808 metric tons of cardboard, etc

Does anyone know where in Jefferson County (we're in the mountains above Golden and have no city removal services) or ??? I can take this stuff to dispose of it?

Searching on the internet the "Jefferson Landfill" is now a private company called "Republic Services' but their website only talks about scheduling pickups, renting dumpsters, etc (they aren't going to be able to get a truck onto my property).
I can find no mention of being able to drop stuff off.

Does anyone know where one is supposed to bring such items?

I live in Larimer Cty and have used:

It's on Arapaho in Boulder. Shouldn't be too much of a drive for you.

I appreciate the input - isn't that more of a recycle place?
This stuff isn't really "recycle" stuff - it is trash.

You could try Front Range Landfill, out by Erie somewhere:

Sounds like they would take your stuff. Dunno how much $$$ though...

Not JeffCo, but Western disposal in boulder will take the cardboard for free, trash you'll have to pay for.

5880 Butte Mill Road
Boulder, CO 80301

Transfer station

There is a transfer station up in Gilpin county as well. They just down from the library.

Thanks for the info everyone.

So JeffCo sold its public landfill to a private company and now they charge a minimum of $120 to enter the facility?
It is starting to sound like our new toll roads...

So people can't afford to go to the dump so they illegally dump shit in public space which leaves the taxpayer to pay for their dumping?
It is starting to sound like our health care system...

Wow.

Two trips to the dump would pay for a potbelly stove and a hatchet.
I think the "heat my shop with wood vs electricity vs gas" question has just been answered.

I'm just going to hack this crap up and burn it

Thanks

Do you have to be a Gilpin resident to use it?
That's actually really close to me as I just go up Twin Spruce to peak to peak.

i have used this junk guy before and his rates were reasonable

Peter was his name and his # is 303-249-1980. Easy enough to work with. For the cost it wasnt worth renting a dumpster or driving to the dump 2-3x. He does it by the trailer load.

As for cardboard recycling, if you are a boulder resident you can use the cardboard recycling place off arapahoe & 61st(?)

CHARM takes just about anything, Styrofoam, Pallets, broke furniture, scrap metal. I brought some air-conditioner condensors and stuff that I would've had a hard time getting rid of at the local recycle center.

About the only thing I can not recall seeing them take were Haz-Mats like paint, oil etc.

The worlds most scenic dump is closed? Bummer... Reality of developing areas is that landfills 'fill' and replacements are farther and farther away.

Western disposal also has a transfer station in Boulder, but can't the cardboard just go to Eco-cycle?

The old Marshall landfill in Boulder County...

Now a superfund site! Mostly due to petrochemical contamination...



But there's now a solar farm right next to it...

Off topic squared, but if anyone ever needs mulch, Western Disposal is hard to beat. You can get a pickup load for about $8 compared to the $50 plus it costs at a landscape materials place...
