Fall Cleanup

Fall Cleanup for 2022 is scheduled to take place in October 3-28. 
Questions? Please call (970) 375-4861.

This is a great opportunity for fire mitigation and creating a defensible space around your home!

Accepted Materials

  • Tree trimmings and branches less than 8 feet in length and less than 8 inches in diameter - click here for Colorado Forest Service pruning recommendations
  • Bagged or boxed loose brush and leaves
  • No other waste will be collected

Who Can Participate?

Only residents who pay for city trash service (households with a single trash container) are eligible to participate in Fall Cleanup. Fall Cleanup is provided 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.

Residents may place items out up to one week prior to scheduled pick up. 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.
