Customized Environmental Training for Employees

Every business keeps an eye on ROI. Is your investment in recycle and compost service being optimized through properly trained and educated employees? If not, give your Western representative a call to schedule a free training session that includes:

  • How to properly sort trash, recycling and compostables, along with what to look for when you encounter a new material.
  • A site walk-through to identify zero waste opportunities.
  • Signage and stickers for interior zero waste stations.

Construction & Cleanup Trash Service

We offer 2-, 4- & 6-cubic yard containers for typical construction debris.

To dispose of heavy excavation materials such as dirt, brick, rock/gravel, sod, concrete, asphalt and other earthen materials or for more overall capacity, select from our assortment of roll-off containers.

Western Disposal offers contractors and builders construction waste sorting services to meet LEED, BuildSmart and Greenpoints requirements. Contact customer service at 303-444-2037 for a quote.

We offer recycling of the following construction materials:

nuts and bolts icon

Scrap Metal

cardboard box icon


concrete icon


asphalt icon


Three options for recycling construction materials:

  • Option 1 – Separate containers for each material (you sort the materials at your job site).
  • Option 2 – Wood, scrap metal and cardboard can all be combined in one container, and Western will sort the materials for an additional fee.
  • Option 3 – Wood, scrap metal and cardboard, as well as your deconstructed trash material, can all be placed in one container, and Western will sort it for an additional fee.

Construction recycling services are available in 6-cubic-yard dumpsters and 12-, 20- and 30-cubic-yard roll-offs.

Recycling for concrete and asphalt is available in 12-cubic-yard roll-offs ONLY due to the weight of the material, and it must be separate for delivery to the appropriate recycling facility.

To make your record-keeping easier, your Western invoice will indicate the total weight for each container haul, whether it is separated material, mixed recyclables or mixed recyclables and trash.

Special Event Organizers Rely On Western Disposal

Successful event organizers know how to delegate. And for zero waste resources and logistics, Western has you covered.

Just a few simple steps and you’ll be ready to go:

  1. Determine your needs: Give us a call at 303-444-2037, and we’ll customize a plan based on the type of event, length of the event and the number of attendees.
  2. Purchase and pick up your supplies: Zero waste stations consist of a set of three cardboard bins and corresponding color-coded bags for trash, recycle and compost.
  3. Container Delivery: Western will deliver your dumpster (or roll-off for a larger event) to your premises.
  4. Post-Event: Place the color-coded bags and flattened cardboard bins in the dumpster or roll-off.
  5. Removal: Give us a call, and we’ll remove the container on the next business day.

The bags come back to Western, where we separate them into the appropriate stream for processing. We also provide you with a report on the amount of material you generated and the amount diverted from the landfill.
