Westminster News in a Hurry

Community trash and recycling efforts

Westminster licenses trash collectors to provide service in the community. Residents and businesses contract directly with the collector for service.

In 2012, Westminster City Council revised the trash collection requirements ensuring that all residential, business and multifamily units in Westminster are offered recycling by licensed collectors. Most collectors charge a separate rate for recycling.

This rate is typically between $0.10 and $0.15 per day or $3 to $4 additional per month. The city also provides recycling drop-off locations.

There are more than 10 different licensed trash collectors in Westminster, contact each one and see who has the most competitive price for you.
