Keeping Commerce City green and clean
In 2005, under the EPA, the oil refinery located in the city had to start abiding by stricter standards in an effort to keep our state clean. Now, Commerce City has taken the lead in greener waste collection by offering a number of ways to get rid of their trash. All residents are given two 96-gallon cans (one for trash and one for recycling) to encourage recycling applicable materials. Additionally, with the help of their waste collection provider, the city provides five large-item pick ups to residents each year for waste that may be too large for their can. Finally, if residents have hazardous materials that they need to get rid of, they have the ability to SAFELY and RESPONSIBLY dispose of them at the Adams County Household Chemical Roundups twice a year. For more information about trash and recycling options please check out Commerce City’s website.
