Next Clean-up Day - DETERMINED IN EARLY 2021
Clean up day is once a year. The court determines a Saturday every year in which the county will accept items that normally cannot be disposed of through your waste services. Hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We do not accept the following items on Cleanup day:
- Paint, paint cans, spray paint, varnish, wood stains, etc.
- HOUSEHOLD TRASH (you should have a local waste disposal company for that service)
- Burn barrels full of ash
- Gas, diesel, propane tanks or flammable products
- Household chemicals such as cleaners or fertilizers
- Sealed barrels or 55 gallon drums of any kind
- Any waste from a business, commercial contractor or non-resident of Parker County.
- Medical or bio-hazard waste products.
- Any type of shingles.
Please note that the items not accepted are for safety and environmental reasons. Clean-up day is for local homeowners. It was intended to help keep Parker County Beautiful and provide an alternative to disposing of brush and materials instead of burning.
