Recycle, Compost, & Trash

The City and County of Denver collects more than 220,000 tons of waste from Denver homes each year. That's an average of 1.2 tons per household each year.

Denver is expanding solid waste services in 2023 with a new fee based on trash cart size. Weekly recycling and invoicing will begin in January and compost service will be rolled out throughout 2023. Rebates are available based on income and household size.
