Commercial Haulers Charge Accounts

The Department of Solid Waste offers charge accounts to high volume commercial users of the Larimer County Landfill.

What Are The Advantages?

  • Charge accounts and payments are handled entirely by mail; you don't need to visit our office.
  • Write one check per month for hauled loads which eliminates prepaying.
  • You receive an itemized receipt for each load and an itemized statement at month's end.
  • Your charge account is available to you 8-1/2 hours a day, six days a week as long as your account is current and the Landfill is open, so you never run short.
  • Drivers do not need to carry cash.
  • Purchase order systems can use a blanket purchase order to open the account.


The driver signs and receives a copy of the charge receipt when each load is brought in. Bookkeepers can reconcile the receipts to the itemized statement at month end.

Types Of Accounts

  • $500 credit limit (with $100 deposit)
  • Negotiable limit suited to customer's needs (with $500 deposit)
  • Non-profit and government agencies

To apply for a charge account read and sign the application and return with appropriate deposit check. You may also need to complete a Hauler's License application. If charge account application is approved, charge cards will be mailed within ten days after receipt of application.
