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 en route to the landfill 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.
The general public and haulers from any location can bring acceptable solid waste and recycling to the landfill.
This is not required unless you are taking advantage of your town's free landfill drop-off day.

The Front Range Landfill opened in 1996 and is expected to operate through 2051.
The Front Range Landfill is responsible for properly closing and maintaining the completed landfill. There is a bond in place to ensure that there is proper funding available. Once the landfill is closed, it will be capped with several feet of soil and vegetation will be planted to stabilize the soil and provide an aesthetically pleasing landscape. The process of “capping” will occur in phases prior to the final completion of the landfill. Other maintenance items, such as landfill gas removal, will be operated and maintained long after the site closes.
Occasionally, seagulls and other bird species are visible around the landfill. The landfill utilizes a falconer to reduce bird populations at the landfill.
