Fall Leaves

Residential leaves can be composted at the rodeo lot in the leaf composting bin at the Rodeo Grounds beginning in October each year. 


NEW in 2022: Beginning January 1, 2022, a composting bin collection site will be available for household food waste compost at the Public Works facility: 3745 Owl Creek Road. The composting bin will replace the existing electronics drop off facility. Find details online.


Commercial Service

Many different dumpster roll-off options are available to non-residential customers. These businesses can arrange for regular waste pickup by contacting the Solid Waste and Recycling Division at 970-923-5110.

Wildlife Safety

The Town’s Wildlife Ordinance requires that trash containers are not left out overnight, and that dumpster sights are properly closed and secured to mitigate wildlife’s access to trash. Visit our Animal Services page for details on wildlife resistant containers and safe disposal guidelines.
