Composting is not required or offered in this area.
Trash service is sold in 32-gallon units with carts provided by Western available in 32-, 64-, or 96-gallon sizes. Rates are based on cart size. Trash is collected every week.
Large item collection
Each resident served under the City program is eligible for free pickup of one large item once each calendar quarter on their regular collection day. An example of a large item is a piece of furniture, an appliance, a piece of small equipment, a lawnmower (fuel and oil must be removed), a barbeque grill, or a mattress. Freon-containing appliances are not included as a free item, but we will collect them for a fee. Customers may not “accumulate” free item collection. In other words, you may not have three items collected free-of-charge during the third quarter of a year because you did not have any collected during the first two quarters of the year.
For a large item pickup, call Western’s Customer Service Department at 303-444-2037. If prior arrangements are not made, the items will be left at the curb.
Unlimited recyclables collected every other week. One 96-gallon cart is provided by the City for your recyclables.
To set up service, call Western Disposal at 303-444-2037.
