trash-bash-2022-NF

The City of Brighton will once again offer its popular Trash Bash in 2022 for Brighton residents to dispose large items. The drop-off program will take place in the spring on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30 and in the fall on Friday, Sept. 23 and Saturday, Sept. 24. For both weekends, Trash Bash will take place from 9 - 5 p.m. at the Brighton Wastewater Treatment Facility located at 325 North Kuner Road (Brighton Street entrance). In addition, the City will provide pick-up service for the elderly or those with special needs on April 27 and 28 and Sept. 21 and 22. To request a pick-up, please call 303-655-2087.

For Trash Bash, acceptable items include:

  • Furniture
  • Cabinets
  • Appliances (no refrigerators or freezers)
  • Bicycles
  • Carpet (must be cut up)
  • Doors
  • Stereos
  • Lawn/yard equipment
  • Mattresses/box springs
  • Branches (must be cut to less than five feet in length and bundled securely)
  • Nail-free lumber (less than eight feet in length)

**Small loose items must be containerized and total weight must be relative to the type of container.

This service is for City of Brighton residents only. No commercial or industrial facilities will be allowed. A City of Brighton water bill or suitable proof of residence (i.e. driver’s license) is required. A suggested donation of $10 will help to defray the cost of the service. Car and light pickup tires will be accepted for a fee of $7 each; oversized pickup tires for $10 each and semi truck tires for $20 each. Residents with large trailers could be asked to unload items by themselves in an effort to keep the line moving.
