Residential Service

Residential trash is collected on a fixed, once-a-week schedule. Trash collection routes have been established for maximum efficiency of operation. Contact the Sanitation Division for the pickup day for a specific location.

All trash containers must be at curbside no later than 6 a.m. am on the scheduled collection day. The city is not responsible for missed collections resulting from late placement of the container.

Commercial Service

Non-residential customers can arrange pickup for up to four days per week, Monday through Thursday. Contact the Sanitation Division for pickup schedules for a specific location.

Holiday Interruptions

Scheduled trash collections that fall on a City-observed holiday will be rescheduled to occur on another day of the same week, as described in the Holiday Schedule and Routes Map document. Customers with questions about holiday collection schedules can also call 970-240-1480.


The holidays observed by the city are: New Year's Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
