The city will host a free landfill day on Saturday, Oct. 19, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Front Range Landfill, 1830 Weld County Road 5 in Erie. This event offers residents an opportunity to dispose of items that are too large to fit in a polycart at the landfill for free. On normal drop off days, it costs $22 to drop off a mattress or box spring and $25 for a non-Freon appliance. The cost for discarding construction or green waste is $29 per ton, with a two-ton minimum charge. Tires are not accepted on free landfill day and Front Range Landfill does not take appliances with Freon. Please call for a special pick up for these items at 303-450-4004. All loads to the landfill must be covered. Proof of residency such as a driver’s license and/or current utility bill is required. Call 303-450-4004 for more information.
Women, ages 40 and older, are invited to visit North Metro Fire Rescue Station 62, 10550 Huron Street in Northglenn, to receive a mammography through St. Joseph’s mobile mammography van on Friday, Oct. 18. Appointments take less than 20 minutes and are conducted by St. Joseph’s trained specialists and breast radiologists.
In order to receive a free mammogram, women should contact LaLa Zubia at (303) 318-3419 to schedule an appointment and for a list of qualifications. All insurances are accepted and billed if the patient has insurance, with the exception of Kaiser Permanente. Those members may get a mammography at the Kaiser Permanente Breast Center.
The Northglenn Police Department (NPD) has partnered with Secure the Call to collect used and unwanted cell phones. A secure barrel where the phones can be dropped off is located in the NPD lobby. The phones are sent to Secure the Call, a nonprofit agency whose goal is to provide emergency-only cell phones to senior citizen centers, domestic violence shelters and law enforcement agencies. Secure the Call prepares the phones for distribution by removing all previous owners’ private information from the phone.
The phones are then distributed free of charge to those who may need them. Since all powered cell phones can connect to 911 whether they have a service provider or not, they can be used in case of an emergency.
Every Thursday starting Oct. 3 Cinzetti’s will donate 10 percent of your meal and beverage service between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. to help the Senior Hub. You must let the server know you are there to support the Northglenn Senior Organization in order for it to benefit that cause.
The Adams Mystery Playhouse will perform “Murder at the Speakeasy” on Oct. 19 and Oct. 26 and proceeds will benefit the Northglenn Community Foundation’s Utility Assistance Program. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by visiting www.northglenncf.org/events-2 or calling Leslie at 303-451-5046.
