Who Can Participate

Longmont residents can conveniently recycle sensitive documents and protect themselves from identity theft.

  • Note: Please be sure to bring a current City of Longmont Utility Bill and identification to show that you are a City resident paying for trash/recycling services.
  • This event is for Longmont residents only; sorry, no businesses allowed, and no walk-up for a fee allowed.
