Can I keep a trash dumpster on my residential property?
Currently, there is no permit process in place for keeping a trash dumpster on a residential property. We feel that if a resident has a need for a trash dumpster and can maintain it in a way such that no neighbors or other Broomfield resident finds it to be a nuisance, then there should be no reason for a dumpster to not be allowed.

We encourage residents to keep their dumpsters towards the back of there lots and only bring them out on the day of trash collection (which should minimize the visibility from the street). If a dumpster becomes a nuisance, the city and county will then step in to help eliminate the nuisance.
