Trash Transfer Site
234 Jankowski Drive, Mile Marker 15, HWY 119, Black Hawk, CO  80422
HOURS: Wednesdays - Saturdays: 7:00 am – 2:30 pm; Sundays: 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Due to an increased volume of traffic at the Transfer Site residents are now required to obtain their “Free Trash Day” Tokens from the Public Works office ONLY.  No one will be allowed to use their “Free Trash Day” without first obtaining the token through the Public Works office.  The Public Works office is open Monday – Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm.  We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some residents but the Transfer Site cannot handle the increased volume along with the time it takes to verify each resident’s information.  Should residents have questions or concerns they may contact Public Works at 303-582-5004.
