The city’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is making adjustments to its extra trash collection service that go into effect next week. As Denver households continue to set out more extra trash amid COVID-19 safer at home guidance, DOTI is needing to create smaller collection routes to meet daily demand. In creating four (4) additional extra trash collection routes for a total of eight (8), we move to an eight (8) week extra trash collection schedule and increase our capacity to collect the extra trash our customers are setting out and meet their expectations.
Here is a map of the new schedule: https://www.denvergov.org/content/dam/denvergov/Portals/709/documents/2020_ETC-8-Week_FLYR_press.pdf
Here are additional resources DOTI hopes are helpful:
- Residents can go to www.denvergov.org/trash to access their waste collection schedules, sign up for alerts and reminders, and download our app to keep track of their upcoming extra trash collection days.
- Customers that can’t wait until their next extra trash collection service day can find on the city’s website, listings of licensed waste haulers and private drop-off facilities for excess trash, where fees apply. https://www.denvergov.org/content/denvergov/en/trash-and-recycling/trash-collection/ETC.html
