Community Clean Ups for City of Pueblo Residents

Community Clean Ups will be held in two neighborhoods on Saturday, May 19 in Bessemer and Saturday, June 9 on the Eastside. The two clean ups are open to City of Pueblo residents with 150 tickets will be sold for each clean up.

For almost two decades the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment coordinated neighborhood clean ups each year in the Bessemer, Eastside, and Hyde Park neighborhoods with funding provided by the City of Pueblo.

“It is important each resident assist in cleaning up neighborhoods. Bessemer residents need to know this is a change from the annual neighborhood clean-up for the Bessemer Neighborhood only and to purchase their tickets early and in advance,” stated Ray Aguilera, District 4 Representative for Pueblo City Council.

Participants must pre-purchase tickets prior to the cleanups to dispose of waste. No tickets will be sold at the event. Tickets for a level pick-up truck load are $15 each, with a limit of one ticket per city household. Bring a photo ID with a city address.

Residents may dispose of tree and shrub trimmings (cut 6 feet or less), scrap metal and appliances, passenger tires (extra $2 per tire - limit 12 tires), scrap lumber, mattresses, old furniture, and fencing. Yard waste, such as leaves, weeds, and cut grass must be bagged. No bagged house garbage, hazardous waste or liquids, TVs, computers, refrigerators, freezers or air conditioners, or asbestos materials will be accepted.

“These events are part of the City of Pueblo’s effort to provide opportunities to clean up the community, such as the new Pueblo RecycleWorks and Large Item Drop Off located at 1595 Stockyard Road,” explained Chris Nicoll, Pueblo City Council president.

Required tickets for city residents to dispose of large items, tires, and yard trimmings are on sale now to participate in the May 19th Neighborhood Clean-Up which will be held from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at the corner of Abriendo Avenue and Canal Street.

  • Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment (formerly known as the Pueblo City-County Health Department), 101 W. 9th Street, 2nd floor.

A limited number of seniors and disabled residents, without any means of delivery, may request curbside pick-up assistance by signing up when tickets are purchased by May 14 for the event in Bessemer.
