Universal Collection in Broomfield

Trash Truck approaching two trash carts


The city of Broomfield currently operates under an open market system, where every resident chooses a waste management company to pick up and dispose of their waste. This system has many downsides including having too many trucks on the city’s streets, limited access to composting and recycling, and an increased amount of GHG pollution. Broomfield currently has up to 10 different waste disposal companies circulating its streets weekly. On average, garbage trucks not only worsen the road conditions 21 times faster than an average mid-size car, but they are large contributors to Greenhouse Gas pollution. The single hauler system would allow for route efficiency, decreasing traffic, and less trucks roaming your neighborhood streets.
