Have you ever wondered how a landfill works? Or what gets made from all that stuff we recycle? At the Garbage Garage Education Center, located at the Larimer County Landfill, you will find out! We host scheduled tour groups and drop-in visitors Tuesday - Friday from 10am - 2pm. Other hours may be arranged by appointment - call us at (970) 498-5772 or email

The adventure begins by entering the “Mountain of Trash,” a tunnel-like hallway covered in discards from the landfill. Visitors learn just how much trash they create, where it goes, and alternatives to throwing it all away. The various displays attract interest from a wide range of age groups, from preschoolers, elementary to college students, and senior adults. The Garbage Garage is an accessible facility.
