Not too long ago, Colorado was home to more than 150 dumps and landfills across the state. As the world goes greener and a larger portion of the population tries to become more environmentally friendly, that number has slowly shrunk over time. In saying that, there are still plenty of dumps in Colorado where you can unload some of your unwanted trash.

You’ll find them in cities and towns such as Mesa, Archuleta, Denver, Summit County, Colorado Spring, Eagle County, and many more.

Some of the most commons items accepted and these landfills include common household waste, green waste, e-waste such as computers, televisions and more, as well as furniture, tires, and vehicle parts. If you’re looking to dump something that might be hazardous or simply a little out of the ordinary, it’s best to give them a call beforehand to check if they can accept your items.

There are a few private corporations like Waste Management Inc, Waste Connections, and Republic Services that manage some dumps around the state, but the majority of them are still owned and operated by the local counties themselves.

Keep in mind that dumping trash at these locations may incur a fee. This will likely depend on how much material you’re dumping what it is. Hazardous materials are much more expensive to process so expect higher fees for them.
