2022 has begun, and Monday marks the start of Denver’s new recycle, compost and trash collection schedule, as 70% of residents are asked to set out their bins on different days of the week.
The new streamlined process hopes to save mileage driven by the trash trucks, improve quality of service and make the approximately 193,988 tons, or 500 pounds per person, Denverites sent to landfills in 2020 a bit easier to take care of.
The trash shift means no more Friday pickups except during holiday weeks when trash collection will be pushed back a day for all.
In 2022, service will be delayed one day following the holidays listed below:
- Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Monday, January 17
- Presidents’ Day: Monday, February 21
- César Chávez Day (observed): Monday, March 28
- Memorial Day: Monday, May 30
- Independence Day: Monday, July 4
- Labor Day: Monday, September 5
- Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24
- Christmas Day (observed): Monday, December 26
