Materials

As a Municipal Solid Waste Landfill (MSW), the Front Range Landfill is authorized to only accept certain types of materials and all incoming loads are subject to random inspection. If you have a question about any type of waste, please contact us in advance of bringing the material to landfill. Call 303-673-9431 or email us.


For safety and environmental reasons, it is critical to cover or tarp and secure all loads in such a manner that no debris can fly out or become airborne in anyway. Please respect the safety of everyone who lives in the areas in route as well as fellow drivers and passengers who may follow you to the landfill. Per state regulations, all uncovered or unsecured loads will be charged double.
