DENVER — Waste Management of Colorado said its trash and recycling collection trucks will not be servicing residential customers in the Denver metro area this week.
Road conditions have made it unsafe for crews and the local community to have collection trucks on the roads and in alleys, Waste Management said on Wednesday.
The company said it plans to resume servicing Denver area residential customers next week on their regular schedule and will pick up extra trash bags at no additional charge.
Waste Management customers can also bring trash and recycling to one of three locations, where special dumpsters are available for free disposal through Sunday, March 21:
- South Denver
- 2400 West Union Ave.
- Englewood, 80110
- North Denver
- 7780 E. 96th Ave.
- Henderson, 80640
- DADS Landfill
- 3500 S. Gun Club Rd.
- Aurora, 80018
Waste Management said its Colorado customers can check their accounts at wm.com for service updates.
The winter storm that brought heavy, wet snow to Denver and the Front Range last Saturday into Sunday was the fourth largest snowstorm on record in Denver since 1881. More than 27 inches fell at Denver International Airport (DIA) by early Monday, making the storm the second-largest snowstorm ever in the city during the month of March.
Before this March blizzard, Denver's fourth-largest snowstorm on record was on Christmas Eve of 1982 when 23.8 inches of snow fell.
The heavy snow and high winds closed all of the runways and airline operations at the DIA Sunday into Monday as crews worked to clear snow and de-ice runways.
