Loveland residents and county residents within close proximity to the city will have an easy way to get rid of debris from the flood. Within the flood zone/evacuation area, people can begin placing flood damaged materials at the curbside for removal.

The City will begin collecting flood damaged debris, working from west to east. The pickup will be from Glade Road to Boise Avenue within the flood zone on both the north and south side of the Big Thompson River corridor.

Considering that clean-up will take place over many months, city crews will continually work from west to east in affected areas. Residents affected by the flood will be responsible for getting debris to the public right-of-way for collection.

Although there is no specific day or time in which crews will be in certain areas, crews will begin collection of debris immediately. To ensure removal of materials, please follow the guidelines set out below. Any material not separated accordingly will not be collected. Any unmarked/unknown liquid/substance considered to be hazardous, will not be collected.


Debris must be segregated accordingly:

  •  Electronics
  • Television, computer, stereo, phone, dvd players
  • Large Appliances
  • Refrigerator, washer/dryer, air conditioner, stove, water heater, dishwasher
  • Hazardous Waste
  • Oil, battery, pesticide, paint, cleaning supplies, compressed gas, including tires
  • Vegetative Debris
  • Tree branches, leaves, logs, plants
  • Construction Debris
  • Building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, plumbing
  • Household Garbage
  • Bagged garbage, discarded food, paper, packaging
  • Discards must be truck accessible
  •  Discards must be placed at nearest public street
  • Discards must not block traffic

Regular city collection of garbage, recyclables, and green waste will continue as normal.
