Your Options for Residential Services

Gallegos Sanitation offers more service CHOICES than any other waste and recycling hauler in Northern Colorado. We would like to remind you of the many choices you have for service options as one of our customers.



Use YOUR OWN Containers:  This option is for customers who own 30-35 gallon container(s) of metal or plastic for their waste.  However, these carts/cans must remain within those size limits to stay in compliance with volume service level requirements.  GSI standard service options allow from 1-3 cans per week, but we will provide additional pricing for greater service levels if requested.


Use our GSI Cart TRASH Services:  GSI offers three cart sizes equipped with wheels and BLACK lids for trash service from which customers may choose:

  • 35-gallon GSI polycart (holds 2-3 tall kitchen trash bags/13-gallons each)
  • 65-gallon GSI polycart (holds 4-6 tall kitchen trash bags)
  • 95-gallon GSI polycart (holds 6-8 tall kitchen trash bags)


Use our GSI TEAL BAG Service:  This is a cost-effective service for customers whose household produces very little or excess “extra” trash during clean-ups or holidays. Customers pay a small monthly service fee to set bag(s) at the curb on your pick-up day – even if it is only once every few months. The prepaid teal bags are sold in bundles of 5 or 10. This service is efficient to help customers avoid extra trash charges to their bill and save $$ when occasional extra volumes of waste occur.


Lease a Think PINK Cart for your trash service:  By displaying a 65- or 95-gallon PINK POLYCART our customers can show their support for cancer awareness in the Northern Colorado community. To join the program there is an initial fee of $40 for enrollment, with $20 of the fee going to a local cancer awareness foundation of your choice (either the Hope Lives Breast Cancer Foundation or the UC Health Cancer Center Navigator Program).


Use our GSI Cart RECYCLE Service:  Bi-weekly recycling service is available in most of our service areas and may be included with the collection cost of your trash (in the city of Fort Collins or Loveland only). Recycle service is available in other areas of Larimer and Weld counties for a nominal fee.  GSI recycle carts have BLUE lids and are available in 65- and 95-gallon sizes. Zealous recyclers might want the larger 95-gallon cart and may add a second cart for a minimal fee.


“Care for the Earth” with our YARDWASTE RECYCLING Service:  Keep organic debris from the landfill and choose to compost your material locally is the benefit of this service.  A specialized 65-gallon green cart allows air to flow above and below grass clippings, branches, weeds, and the leaves you place inside. This seasonal service (for selected areas) operates from May through November for a fee that is less than the cost of four extra bags a month.

More Service Options – ON-CALL Services:

For yard, garage, or neighborhood clean-ups we suggest these services to meet your needs:

  • Arrange for a ONE-time “Special pick-up” of your trash
  • SMALL JOB =3-yard Dumpster (holds up to 20 35-gallon bags)
  • MEDIUM JOB=15-yard “mini” Roll-off container (holds between

70-80 35-gallon bags)

  • LARGE JOB=30-yard Roll-off container (as seen at construction sites)


SPECIAL EVENT WASTE Services:  GSI provides Indoor VIP Restroom Trailers, Portable Toilet Rentals, Hand-wash Stations, and Event Waste & Recycling Management. Our Green Team can help any event become “greener” and less wasteful.
