Trash Rate Increase Starts January 2017

First increase since 2004.

A rate increase for trash collection in the city of Northglenn has been approved and will begin Jan. 1, 2017.

This is the first increase since 2004, 12 years ago. The increase from $12.25 to $16 was determined to be necessary because over the years the cost of trash collection has increased and now far outweighs the fees collected.

The city will continue to provide two free special pick-ups to residents, the third will increase to $100. Each special pick up costs the city a minimum of $136, and there is a need to offset some of the cost.

Roll-off dumpster rentals will increase from $180 to $257. This includes $180 for the roll-off and $77 for the fee at the landfill. However, free roll-offs will continue to be available for groups of five neighbors.
