Larimer County residents now have the option of keeping green waste out of the landfill. So, what is green waste? It’s clean lumber, wood pallets, tree limbs and trimmings; tree trunks less than two feet in diameter by six feet long; and yard waste. Larimer County Solid Waste begins their Residential Green Waste Program on August 21, 2017.  

Green waste will be accepted at the $6.05 per-cubic yard rate, with no surcharge. All loads must be unloaded by waste type [clean lumber and pallets, green waste, logs, and yard waste]. No other trash will be accepted in a load; all mixed loads will go to the landfill.

The following items will not be accepted as green waste: fiberboard, food waste, metal, painted wood, plastic, plywood, root balls, soil, trash, and treated wood. Bags and containers cannot be dumped with green waste and should be kept for reuse.
