Solid Waste Management Service Reminders

Keeping track of weekly, every-other-week, and every-four-week solid waste services can be challenging. Fortunately, a variety of collection reminder options are available to help Denver residents remember their trash, recycling and compost service schedules. You can set up phone call, email, and calendar reminders.

Denver Solid Waste Management customers are encouraged to use the following collection reminder tools: 

  • Phone Call Reminders: Select the time you would like to receive a reminder call on the day before your collection day.
  • Email Reminders: Select the day and time you would like to receive your collection reminder.
  • Calendar Download: Download your service calendars to Google, iCal or Outlook. Or, save or print a PDF.

App Reminders: Download the Denver Trash and Recycling app to view calendar information, access the Recycling Directory and Waste Sorting Game, and set up customized push notifications. (Note: the Denver Trash and Recycling app is available at the App Store and Google Play in both English and Spanish.)

All collection reminder options, including the app, are free and can be deleted at any time. Don’t delay! Join the thousands of Denver residents already utilizing collection reminders. Sign up today
