Jeffco SLASH sites open through October

Keep your yard free of tree debris and cut back on wildfire danger

Posted

Jeffco Sustainable Lands and Safer Homes (SLASH) is hosting a summer-long program of collection sites where you can drop off tree debris and other organic material.

The 2021 slash collection will be each weekend at various locations throughout Jefferson County until Oct. 31. See the full list and more info at www.jeffco.us/2493/Slash-Collection

What can you bring?

Slash includes tree debris and limbs with a maximum length of 8 feet and a maximum diameter of 6 inches. You can also bring loose pine needles, tree bark and pine cones. 

What’s not allowed?

Slash sites won’t accept household trash, tree stumps, metal of any kind, rocks, yard waste/grass clippings, construction materials or lumber. In addition, they will not accept paper or plastic bags. All bagged material must be emptied into the collection pile.

Fees

A single load will cost $20, and only credit cards will be accepted. A single load is a truck bed full to the truck cab height or a trailer up to 8’x5’x4’. If your load exceeds these parameters, you will be charged additional fees accordingly.

What’s in it for you?

Keeping debris cleared and thinning out trees is vital to forest health. 

Removing slash and creating a defensible space around your home is the first line of defense against wildfires. This is not only important for your property, but it means being a good neighbor too, reducing potential hazards for the entire area.

Great tips on how to protect your home and property can be found on the Jeffco Sheriff’s hazard mitigation page and at FireWise website.
