Rural unincorporated county residents will have access to dumpsters in various areas affected by the flood. Locations for those dumpsters will be communicated
through neighborhood associations, fire protection districts, community flyers and word of mouth. Contractors caught using these dumpsters for commercial purposes will be ticketed and fined. Unincorporated residents will need to arrange collection of curbside items with their haulers. The county cannot provide curbside pick-up.
Boulder County and City of Boulder residents may also take flood debris to Western Disposal’s transfer station located at 5880 Butte Mill Road beginning today. It is open Monday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fees will be waived for residential flood debris disposal at the transfer station.
The state of Colorado prohibits the disposal of electronics in the landfill. They can be recycled at various locations in the county including Western Disposal or the Eco-Cycle Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM).
