Trash Pick-Up & Recycling
Trash and recycling services are provided by private companies in the City of Centennial, with each provider operating on their own pick up schedule. Some HOAs throughout the City have contracted with one trash provider in an effort to receive favorable rates and reduce truck traffic in neighborhoods. If you are interested in organizing one trash provider for your neighborhood, look at the Neighborhood Trash Collection Toolkit(PDF, 144KB) for insight into the process, a survey for neighbors and tips for creating proposals for potential vendors.

Telephone, Internet & Cable

Denver Water Lead Reduction Program
Centennial gets much of it’s water through Denver Water distributors.
Although the water that Denver Water provides to customers is lead-free, lead can enter the water as it moves through lead-containing household fixtures, plumbing and water service lines owned by the customer. Denver Water’s Lead Reduction Program, which was approved by the EPA and CDPHE in late 2019, officially launched in spring 2020. Read more about the Lead Reduction Program.
