Trash is not collected on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. If your trash day falls on one of these holidays, your trash will be picked up on the next business day.
Normal trash must be placed in a city-provided polycart. The only exceptions are curbside recycling of automotive batteries, antifreeze and or/motor oil.
Residents can place up to three polycarts out at one time.
Extra polycarts can be purchased from the city by calling 303-450-4004. The city has three sizes available:
• 40 gallons, which holds 168 pounds and costs $45
• 64 gallons, which holds 224 pounds and costs $58
• 96 gallons, which holds 335 pounds and costs $60.
This fee can be charged to your utility bill.
The city has concerns about equipment compatibility, cart damage and warranties. The polycarts purchased from the city are guaranteed to work with the city's trucks and have a 10-year warranty.
Automated trash collection allows for increased productivity, which allows the city to offer residents curbside recycling services.
The monthly fee for trash pick up is $12.25 per month. The fee is added to your utility bill.
A special pick up is for a large item that does not fit in your polycart. You get two free special pick ups a year. Additional special pick ups are $7.50 for up to 10 items. Additional items are subject to additional fees. Special pick ups are collected on your regular trash day. Appliances containing Freon, tires and other items may involve an additional fee.
Things like appliances, furniture, lawnmowers, etc. constitute a special pick up. However, there are items the landfill won't accept, so the city will not pick those up - i.e. hazardous waste, medical waste and propane tanks.
Trash bags, carpeting, fencing material, concrete, boxes, bundled tree branches, and building or construction material will not be collected.
Call the Operations Division at 303-450-4004 and give an itemized list of what you would like picked up. Please keep in mind the solid waste crews will only pick up what is on the special pick up ticket. You must call no later than 2:30 p.m. one business day prior to your collection day.
