The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office has announced its three remote slash drop-off dates for this summer. Jeffco again will team with mountain fire departments to host the sites.
Slash disposal became more of a challenge when the Rooney Road Recycling Center stopped accepting organic material in 2012. Jefferson County has received a grant for an “air curtain” burner for slash, but a location hasn’t been decided yet.
The sites will accept tree limbs, needles and other organic material. Residents will be charged between $5 and $25, depending on the amount of slash.
For more information, visit www.jeffco.us/sheriff or call the Jeffco sheriff’s emergency management office at 303-271-4900.
