Fees for Slash Drop-off
Any size truck or trailer is welcome at Jefferson County Slash Collection sites. Dump fees are based on six cubic yards (162 cubic feet) of material: six yards is one load. The cost to drop off a single "load" is $20. Credit cards only. This is equivalent to:
Truck bed full to truck cab height
Trailer up to eight feet long by five feet wide by four feet high
Loads outside these parameters will be charged accordingly.

Calculate Cost
Here is an example to know how to figure your cost:
A 16 foot long trailer that is five feet wide and stacked four feet tall with tree branches16 feet by 5 feet by 4 feet equals 320 cubic feet320 cubic feet divided by 162 cubic feet (six yards) = 1.98 "loads"Each load is $20So, rounded off, this example trailer will cost $40 to drop at a Jeffco Slash Collection siteThe fees that are charged help to offset the cost for the processing
equipment, staffing and keeping the program sustainable so it can
continue into future years.

Help Reduce Wildfire Danger
It’s Wildfire Season ... Protect Your Home!Clear your property and bring your tree debris to the Jefferson County Slash Collection! For 2020, we’ll be somewhere in Jefferson County every weekend from June 6 through Nov. 1. Check back as the locations are being finalized. 

{size=4]What is Slash?[/size]
Slash  is debris, from nature, such as tree  limbs, prunings and pine needles.
If not removed, slash can add to  potential fire hazards on your property. The importance of mitigating and preparing your property for wildfire cannot be overstated - and again this year, Jefferson County is your partner in this effort.

The Importance of Mitigation
Removing slash and creating a defensible space around your home, is the first line of defense against wildfires. You can create zones around your home, removing any fire fuels, such as tree debris. Having a properly mitigated property doesn’t mean that wildfire will pass you by, but it gives the fire department a better opportunity to save your home when it does come. Great tips on how to protect your home and property can be found on the Jeffco Sheriff’s hazard mitigation page and at Fire Wise website.
