City-Wide Open Burning Regulations
Beginning July 1, 2023, several new regulations concerning Open Burning will go into effect for the City of Aurora. Enforcement of these regulations will begin on July 1, 2023. These regulations will be a change for our community, so we encourage citizens to get familiar with them early!

Residential Trash Restricted Items
There are many items that cannot be collected by the trash hauler because it cannot go into the landfill. If these are left in your trash for pickup, your trash WILL NOT be picked up. Here are common examples, but this is not an exhaustive list. Doty trash will contact the City Billing Dept. and we will attempt to contact you and let you know what needs to be done to correct any problem items that cannot be accepted.
