Who Can Participate?

Only City of Durango residents who pay for the Spring/Fall Cleanup service fee on their utility bill are eligible to participate in Spring Cleanup. Spring Cleanup service is managed by the City of Durango’s Streets Division and is paid for by the fee collected on residents’ monthly utility bills.

Material placed by those who are not eligible or material placed outside a designated area/time is considered illegal dumping. If you observe or suspect illegal dumping in your neighborhood, please report it at (970) 385-2900.

When and Where to Place Materials

Place materials where you place your trash cans in the alley for collection, or curbside in areas of town where there are no alleys.

In order to make sure your items are collected, please make sure all items are placed out by the day before your scheduled pickup week. Once crews collect along the designated pickup area, they will not return. Residents are asked not to place items out more than one week prior to your pickup week, doing so may be considered illegal dumping.
