Fremont County and the City of Cañon City are once again making trash vouchers available to citizens at no charge as part of the annual spring cleanup campaign.   Fremont County is making 300 trash vouchers available to residents in the unincorporated areas of the county.   The vouchers are available on a first come-first served basis. (started March 24).    County vouchers will be available in the Fremont County Administration Office in Room #106 of the County Administration Building from 8 to 5 Monday through Thursday.

Cañon City residents may pick up a free Cañon Proud trash voucher from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday at City Hall, 128 Main Street.    Proof of residency is required when obtaining a voucher.  Only one voucher will be issued per household.

Each voucher is good for free disposal of a standard pickup load of trash (2.5 cubic yards) at Twin Enviro’s Phantom Landfill north of the Fremont County Airport along County Road 67.   Persons hauling in excess of 2.5 cubic yards will be charged extra on site.    The landfill is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The vouchers expire at Phantom Landfill on April 30th at 4:00 p.m.  All loads must be covered, and no commercial haulers or contractors qualify for these vouchers.

Recycling, located at 1501 High Street (719-641-0630 or 275-2052) will accept appliances Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm for free disposal.  They will also pick up large loads in bulk.  Brass, aluminum, and copper will be purchased at prevailing rates.  They will purchase automobile batteries for $5 each.
