Thornton provides curbside trash and recycling collection to over 27,000 homes, as well as a number of other collection services for our citizens. The collection service operates as an enterprise fund — meaning that all costs are covered by user fees.

e Collection Schedule?

REMINDER:  Recycling is a twice a month service for City trash customers, not every other week.  For example: if your recycle collection schedule is every 1st and 3rd Monday or Tuesday of the month, and there are 5 Mondays and Tuesdays in March, your recycle will not be collected on the 30th or the 31st.

To have your recycle pick up schedule sent electronically, please email your physical home address to environmentalsvcs@cityofthornton.net with
RECYCLE CALENDAR REQUEST in the subject line.

Or, click here to locate your home address on a map with recycle schedules.
