Debris Placement & Disposal Guideline Following Longmont Flood

Debris from the flood will be removed by City of Longmont, providing residents follow the following instructions:

Roll-offs will be placed in the following six areas (see map):

  • Area 1 – Valley and Golden Ponds Neighborhood
  • Area 2 – Champion Greens and the Greens
  • Area 3 – St Vrain Mobile Home Park
  • Area 4 – Missouri Avenue
  • Area 5 – Delaware Street between Main and South Pratt
  • Area 6 – Royal Mobile Home Park (when evacuation notice is lifted and area again accessible)

If you live in one of the six affected flood zones, please place the debris in the roll-offs provided. If a roll-off has yet to be placed in your neighborhood, please place the debris in your yard just above the curb. Please do not place items in the street.

Yard waste, garbage and construction will be accepted in roll-off containers.

Please direct all pumped water and mud from inside homes into the street.

Items that will NOT be accepted in roll-off or trash carts in flood areas are paints, chemicals, electronics, and large appliances. The city will route through designated areas and pick up these items at a later date.

All normal curbside trash collection and recycle schedules will be maintained except in areas where the road is impassible.

Public Works is monitoring the roll-offs and managing exchanges.

If you are not included in a flood area and you believe you are in need of service, please direct any additional questions regarding normal trash collection and roll-offs to (303)651-8416.


Trash Collection Scheduled for Monday - Updated

Longmont trash and recycling will be collected on a normal schedule on Monday morning except in areas that are still flooded. Customers should place their trash cans (polycarts) and recycle bins on the curb as usual. If your can is lost or missing call 303-651-8416.

Trash Roll-off dumpsters will be placed in Longmont neighborhoods most affected by the recent flood waters beginning on Monday morning. A list of neighborhoods and locations will be available once the dumpsters are deployed. View the map for debris collection.

The Longmont Waste Division Center at 140 Martin St. will be open regular hours on Monday morning for tree limbs. No trash will be accepted here. Visit http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/solidwaste/recycle/limbdiversion.htm.

Residents that want to dispose of flood damaged items should place them in their yard near the curb and not in the street. Please do not block gutters.
