We really like City Councilman Chris Nicoll’s idea to set up some drop-off locations in Pueblo where people can dump furniture and junk for a low price.
Currently, the costs of dumping such items at the Southside Landfill is relatively expensive, so some Puebloans decide to just dump things like mattresses wherever they can get away with it. Overton Road north of Pueblo, for example.
So Nicoll’s plan, which he described last week to The Chieftain has real merit.
Nicoll said he is expecting city staff to bring forward a plan by summer.
