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!

Denver expanded solid waste services in 2023 with a new fee based on trash cart size. Weekly recycling and invoicing began in January and compost service will rollout starting in summer 2023. Rebates are available based on income and household size.
