Covenant & Community Information

What are the guidelines about trash in my neighborhood?

Highlands Ranch is divided into five different trash pick up zones. All trash companies are required to pick up trash on each zone’s assigned day. Trash and/or recycling containers should not be placed on the street earlier than 7:00 p.m. the evening prior to the scheduled pick up.  One day per week trash is picked-up in each of five service zones (see Trash Zone Map) in Highlands Ranch.
