The Larimer County Landfill is located south of Fort Collins on Taft Hill Road about two miles south of Harmony Road. From Loveland, drive north on Wilson Avenue about 6 miles north of the city limits.

In Colorado, high winds can be a sudden occurrence. The Larimer County Landfill will be closed under high wind conditions. Wind conditions are closely monitored using an on-site wind meter.

In addition, the recycling area is closed when the Landfill is closed. The Household Hazardous Waste Facility, Education Center, and Business Office will maintain their normal business hours during periods of closure due to wind.

State regulations require landfills to close during high winds per the following: "Facilities for solid waste disposal where final disposal is performed, shall cease operations during periods when high winds are verified at the facility. High winds are defined as sustained winds of 40 mph or greater, or gusts of 55 mph or greater and are expected to persist for one hour or longer, as per the National Weather Service."

View the Colorado Revised Statutes 42-4-1407 pertaining to covered loads.

All waste, regardless of type, size or weight must be completely enclosed with a cover and secured to your vehicle. This includes trash in plastic bags. Our uncovered load policy is strictly enforced; if you don't cover it, you'll be charged double fees.

Customers are responsible for uncovering their loads as well as offloading their trash at both the landfill and the transfer stations.
