Boulder County Community Forestry Sort Yards to open for the 2023 season

County residents can drop off tree branches, logs, and timber free of charge in Nederland and Allenspark

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Community Forestry Sort Yard program, a free log and slash disposal service for Boulder County residents, will open soon for the 2023 season.

Nederland Sort Yard - 291 Ridge Road, Nederland - Open Wednesday, May 3, through Saturday, Oct. 28 • Hours of Operation: Wednesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Meeker Park Sort Yard - 8200 Hwy 7, Allenspark • Open Wednesday, May 17, through Saturday, Oct. 14 • Hours of Operation: Wednesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The sort yards may have periodic closures depending on weather, staff training, and administrative requirements. County residents can drop off tree branches, logs, and timber free of charge at either sort yard location. Due to recent changes with compost manufacturer A1 Organics, brown paper yard bags will no longer be accepted, which means weeds, grass, and forbs will not be accepted. Please check the webpage for details on what is accepted at the sort yards.

For more information about the sort yard program please visit the Community Forestry Sort Yards webpage or contact Wayne Harrington at wharrington@bouldercounty.org or 303-678-6368.
