Thank you for your commitment to recycling! Changes were made to the Center in 2009 to reduce operating costs, the number of hauls by one-third, and Broomfield's carbon footprint.

The Education Center is now open to offer environmental classes for Broomfield residents. To check on upcoming classes, please refer to the city's calendar, or Channel 8. Sign up for "B in the Loop" to automatically receive information about upcoming environmental classes.

The drop-off is closed at all other times. Attendant will be on duty, and proof of residency is required.

Leaves: The discarded leaves should be placed into the branch pile inside the fenced area. Leaves will be chipped into mulch along with the tree limbs, Please—no plastic bags or other yard debris with the leaves. 

Pumpkins: Pumpkins should be put into the roll-off that is staged inside the branch drop-off area. Pumpkins will be composted.
