Yard waste cleanup events for residents

Residents will have the opportunity to recycle green, organic yard waste during Lakewood’s free yard waste cleanup events from 8 a.m. – Noon on Saturday, May 3 and 10 at two different locations each day.

All material collected will be composted, so only green, organic waste will be accepted such as tree branches, yard clippings, leaves and shrub prunings.  Logs, smaller than 24” long and 6” diameter will also be accepted.  Items not accepted include plastic, sod, dirt, trash, treated wood and construction materials such as plywood, brick, concrete, edging and fencing.

Residents can choose from the following dates and locations:
May 3:  Lakewood Church of the Nazarene, 1755 Dover St. or O’Connell Middle School, 1275 S. Teller St.
May 10:  Jefferson County Public Schools building, 809 Quail St. or Foothills Elementary School, 13165 W. Ohio Ave.

Proof of Lakewood residency is required, but there is no cost to drop off acceptable items. For more information, please visit or call 303-987-7193.
