Dumpster Collection Service

Dumpster trash service customers are provided with dumpsters in the alley behind their homes for the disposal of household trash only. Automated trucks are used to lift and empty the dumpster. Generally, one dumpster is provided for every four households to share, but residents may use any dumpster in their alley.

Dumpster Service Guidelines

  • Keep area around the dumpster clear of trash and large items at all times.
  • Do not place items next to or within 4 feet of the dumpsters.
  • Bag all of your trash in heavy-duty bags.
  • Always keep the dumpster lid closed to reduce litter and pests.
  • Place recycling carts at least 4 feet away from dumpsters.
  • If the closest dumpster is full, please take your trash to the next closest dumpster that has space available.
  • Do not place furniture, construction debris, sod or dirt in dumpsters.
  • Maximize space in your dumpster by placing items in the rear of the dumpster first.
  • Report illegal dumping by calling 311 (720-913-1311) as soon as possible.  Record a license plate number and state of origin, description of the vehicle and a description of the person(s). Please do not approach or confront the person(s).

Setting out Branches and Yard Waste

  • Tie loose branches in bundles no longer than 4 feet in length and in bundles weighing no more than 50 pounds. No branches may exceed 4 inches in diameter.  A maximum of five bundles of branches or five bags of leaves per week can be placed in dumpsters.
  • Leaves and yard clippings must be in bags or containers and weigh no more than 50 pounds each when full.  Learn when and where you can take leaves to be recycled with LeafDrop.
  • When placing out large volumes of branches and/or bags of leaves, please follow the LIP collection schedule for your neighborhood. Place items in back of your home in the alley.
  • Do not place items within 4 feet of the dumpsters.
