Trash & Recycling

Included in your quarterly CAB Assessments are fees for trash and recycling service. These services are provided by Waste Connections of Colorado.

Pickup Schedule

Trash pickup occurs every Monday, and recycling pickup occurs every other Monday. Make sure to place bins outside by 7:00am in order for trash pickup. Containers for pickup may be placed on the street or alleyway the morning of pick-up and must be returned to an appropriately screened location by the end of the pick-up day. Please be aware Sterling Ranch is home to various different types of wildlife! Proper trash cart storage is important to the safety of the community and those that inhabit it. 

Holiday Schedule

Trash pickup will be delayed by one day for the following holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

New Homeowners

Trash Cart Delivery

Trash and recycling carts will be delivered to your home, within one week of closing. If you still do not receive trash carts after one week of closing, please contact the Resident Resource Center to confirm the estimated delivery date. 

First Month Trash Pickup

For the first month after closing on your home, you will receive unlimited curbside pickup, regardless if all items fit in your trash containers. After the first month, all trash must fit inside your trash containers. Learn more about what items are accepted by Waste Connections.

If you recently purchased a resale home, please complete the Trash & Recycling Request Form to receive your first month of free pickup.
