Thornton provides curbside trash and recycling collection to over 26,625 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.

 

 

Fall Leaf Collection

City of Thornton trash customers may place their bagged leaves at the curb for collection on their regular trash pick up day:

October 20 through November 14.

Please use black trash containers first.  Bags filled with trash or debris will not be collected. This is a four week program and subject to restrictions.
