Recycle, Compost, & Trash

The City and County of Denver collects more than 220,000 tons of waste from Denver homes each year. That's an average of 1.2 tons per household each year.

Collection days are changing for many customers on January 3, 2022, as DOTI adjusts how drivers move through the city to make operations more efficient and trash collection services more reliable and consistent.
