Beware of Unscrupulous Contractors Dumping Waste Illegally

Apparently some unscrupulous contractors have moved into the Longmont area.  We have received reports of dump trucks entering Longmont neighborhoods and dumping waste and debris illegally, most likely from areas around Longmont.  This is not authorized and prohibited by law.

We would ask our community to get a license plate and description of the truck.  If you can, snap a photo with your phone or camera.   If you see someone illegally dumping in your neighborhood, please don’t confront, call the Longmont Police at 303-651-8501 immediately.

Boulder County District Attorney's Office Issues Illegal Dumping Warning

Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett warns residents to be on the alert during the next days and weeks for illegal dumping of commercial waste by companies operating in the area after the flood disaster.

Boulder County has provided free dumpsters at various sites hit hard by the floods. These are intended for use by homeowners and renters, so that residents can get wet or damaged property out of their homes as quickly as possible.

City of Longmont roll off dumpsters have been placed in flood impacted areas. View map of locations.

However, there has been extreme pressure at legitimate disposal sites due to the sheer volume of the destruction caused by the flooding. The effect of this has been that clean-up companies have been dumping huge amounts of debris, carpet, drywall and other trash at the dumpster sites, often around the area of the dumpsters. Homeowners who are paying these companies are no doubt being charged the costs of dumping materials removed. Concerned residents who have seen this happening have already reported this activity to county personnel.

District Attorney Stan Garnett advises: “Clean up companies need to dispose of their waste responsibly and in a legal manner. Anyone who suspects illegal dumping should record the type of vehicle, license plate number, and any identifying logo on the truck. They should then call this in to the Emergency Call Center Line at 303 413 7730, or to my Community Protection Division at 303 441 3700. My office will be working with members of the public, other county staff and the Attorney General’s Office to prevent the dumping of hazardous or illegal waste in the County.”

The Community Protection Division of the District Attorney’s Office is also dealing with numerous consumer complaints related to the disaster and its consequences. Consumer specialists are available between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to assist anyone who has a problem. Complaints can also be filed online, at:
