Sofa Retirement Pick-Up Program

July 20, 2009

For the past seven years, the Great Sofa Round-up has provided free sofas to those in need as well as free disposal for sofas that were past their prime.

Increase in bedbugs

We've recently learned that there is a notable increase in bedbug infestations and thus an increase in the potential to spread bedbugs. While this has not been an issue in the past, our research and conversations with other communities and pest control agencies have given us pause.

Neighborhood Services and Colorado State University Off-Campus Life have decided to take a year to determine if this service is still needed in our community, what our options are for inspecting and/or treating furniture, and how to proceed in future years.

Replacing the Great Sofa Round-up

In replacement of the Great Sofa Round-up on July 31, we will offer a Sofa Retirement Pick-Up Program.

We will do free curbside pick-ups for sofas that have no life left and need to go to the dump. To schedule a pick-up (space is limited), call Neighborhood Services at (970) 224-6046. 

Pickups must be scheduled in advance.
