Residential Trash Removal

Trash day is every Tuesday. Trash should be put out by 7 a.m. to ensure pick up. On the rare occasion that a major holiday falls on a Monday or Tuesday, trash will be picked up on Wednesday. Recycling Services are currently not offered until Gallegos Sanitation obtains enough customers to provide recycling services.

The Town of Kersey has implemented the residential single service trash provider as allowed by state statute. This means that all residents pay the town for the trash service that is contracted to haul residential trash. Commercial and/or industrial entities are exempt from this and can use the trash service of their choice.

Gallegos Sanitation
The Town recently contracted with Gallegos Sanitation, Inc. after the retirement of the owner of Northern Colorado Disposal.  Toters are provided to all customers and alley or street pick up is available depending on the neighborhood.

The service will pick up extra trash in Gallegos Sanitation teal bags that can be purchased either at Town Hall or directly from Gallegos.  All residents are provided with one toter. Please contact Town Hall if you would like an additional toter.  The first toter is $15 and second toter will be an additional $12.  Contact Gallegos Sanitation directly for any large trash pick up such as a mattress or sofa. 
If you have a problem with your toter, or any other issue with your trash service, please call Gallegos Sanitation, Inc at 970-425-0444 to make arrangements for replacement as each toter has an identification number on it specified to your address. If there are problems that can not be solved, please call Town Hall at 970-353-1681.

Billing


Trash service is bundled with water and sewer and is mailed by the Town on the 21st of each month. The Town charges $15 per month for one toter and $12 for each additional toter. Any monthly billing issues can be directed to Town Hall staff at 970-353-1681.
