Residential Trash and Recycling

The City and County of Broomfield does not provide trash collection service. Trash removal is contracted on an individual basis* with private solid waste companies. Some of the trash haulers licensed to operate in Broomfield offer curbside recycling. Services, prices, and pickup days vary depending on the hauler you choose. 

*If you live within a homeowners' association-regulated area, contact your association or management company for more information on trash removal.
