Larimer County Landfill
Todd Harding, TSM

The Larimer County Landfill is now accepting flood debris and waste from the recent flooding. Debris and waste will be charged at the regular per cubic yard rate of $5.25 plus 9 cents surcharge ($5.34) per cubic yard for cars; $5.25 plus 18 cents surcharge ($5.43) per cubic yard for trucks; and $5.25 plus 28 cents surcharge ($5.53) for commercial per cubic yard.

ALL LOADS MUST BE COVERED BY A TARP.

Please adhere to the following guidelines for disposal of listed items:

  • Flood damaged construction debris: Drywall, lumber, windows and doors, concrete blocks, siding, insulation, etc. and septage and sewage if mixed with other debris. Larimer County will accept non-friable asbestos. If flood debris is known to contain friable asbestos we will not accept it. If it is unknown, we will accept it. Dry materials should be wetted or wrapped in plastic to minimize airborne contaminants.
  • Wet dirt over 50% of the total load will be charged at the regular rate of $6.65 per cubic yard plus 18 cents surcharge ($6.83) per cubic yard for trucks and $6.65 per cubic yard plus 28 cents surcharge ($6.93) per cubic yard for commercial. Only landfills with a liner and sump system are allowed to accept flood debris that is expressing liquids for disposal. The Larimer County Landfill IS NOT LINED and this debris will not be accepted.
  • Other waste types accepted for landfill disposal. Appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dishwashers, and laundry appliances. $23/each for Freon containing units. Other items are charged at the regular landfill rates.
  • Dead animal carcasses, $12/100 pounds.
  • Tree limbs, yard waste and other vegetation and food waste. Tree branches six inches in diameter or more must be cut into 6-foot lengths.
  • Cars, trucks, and motor home bodies, $50/each. Titles must accompany these items. Fuel, oil, hydraulic fluid and other automotive fluids must be removed and disposed of properly. For more guidance or information, call (970) 498-5760.
  • Electronics: Electronics such as computers and televisions can be taken to the electronics recycling center operated by Waste Management for a $.40/lb. fee. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has issued a temporary waiver of the electronic waste landfill ban which allows the disposal of only residential electronic waste at a landfill if the waste has been contaminated by sewage, septage or is  not recyclable from flood debris contamination. Per regulations this does not include business e-waste which MUST be managed as a universal waste, or possibly as a hazardous waste, depending on the material characterization.
  • Hazardous Waste: The following items, paint up to a 30-gallon limit and propane tanks under 40 lbs., may be taken for free by Larimer County residents to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Phone (970-498-5771) for more information. Hours of operation for residential waste: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. There is a charge for business waste and appointments may be made by calling (970) 498-5771.
  • Recyclable items: Normal recyclable materials should be dry. Metal items to be recycled must be washed clean of mud and debris before recycling. Wet items are not acceptable for recycling and should be disposed of in the landfill.

For items not listed, please call (970) 498-5760 for more information.
