Curbside Trash Collection Services#

City will Explore Creating a Community-wide Contract for Household Trash and Recycling Collection

In early 2023, Fort Collins City Council adopted a contract for residential trash and recycling collection. The new service will start on September 30, 2024. 

The new program is designed to increase opportunities for composting and recycling, provide equitable, consistent pricing across the community, and increase safety and reducing emissions by reducing the number of trash trucks on residential streets.

Learn more about which homes are included in the new contract, services offered, pricing, and more.
