Resident Resources

Welcome home to Ken-Caryl Ranch!

We are a resident-controlled community, responsible for over 4,800 acres of open space, architectural and covenant control, refuse removal and recycling, an Equestrian Center, and a bi-weekly newspaper, Life at Ken-Caryl. We also have a Metropolitan District (similar to a Parks & Recreation District) that provides recreational facilities, parks and extensive programming.

All property owners, both commercial and residential, are automatic members of the Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association. As such, they pay monthly dues and observe architectural controls and covenants. In return, members may enjoy all Master Association facilities, programs and services and exercise voting privileges at the Annual Meeting, electing a Board of Directors. Members of neighborhoods with sub associations might pay an additional assessment to a sub association organization that owns and maintains property in particular neighborhoods, much in the same way the Master Association does for the overall Ranch.

Waste Connections

Utilities & Trash

Waste Connections COVID-19 Update

To protect the safety of our Waste Connections drivers, the following changes to our trash service will take place effective 3/27/20:

  • Please ensure that all trash is bagged, and not loose inside the carts or cans. This prevents trash from flying or spilling out when being serviced, and may also reduce the smell for bears and other animals.
  • All large cardboard must be cut and placed inside a recycling container, trash container or garbage bag. No boxes can be set on the curb. Studies indicate cardboard can hold the COVID-19 virus.
  • Household trash will be limited to one filled can (either your personal trash can, or the 96-gallon tote provided by Waste Connections) plus up to three additional bags of trash. (You can leave out one filled can and three bags on the side.) If you have yard waste it must be either in your trash can or in the three extra bags.
  • Recycling service will be normal, and they will pick up any recycling inside your regular containers. No extra boxes will be picked up from the curb.
  • No bulk items may be placed out, such as mattresses, furniture, etc. This will ensure efficient operations and will protect the safety of the drivers.
  • Communities with dumpsters will continue to receive the same service. Please be sure all items are placed inside the dumpster, not beside it.

Thank you for helping keep our drivers safe. This is a temporary change and we will return to regular pick-up after the crisis.

Trash & Recycling

We have contracted with Waste Connections for our Ken-Caryl Ranch curbside trash and recycling program. Each neighborhood has a designated day of pickup (see schedule). This service is included in the membership dues, which are paid to the Master Association by homeowners. Along with a variety of services that Waste Connections offers to residents, just one trash removal vehicle and one recycling collection vehicle will be in your neighborhood just one day of the week. Please have trash and recycling out at the curb and placed on opposite sides of the driveway by 7 a.m. Waste Connections may be contacted at 303-288-2100.

TRASH SERVICE DETAILS

There are two options for weekly curbside household trash collection:
Residents may request one 96-gallon trash tote which will be provided by Waste Connections (see below for sign-up information). In addition to servicing the tote once a week, Waste Connections will also collect up to six bags or bundles of yard waste (branches must be tied and bundled in lengths not to exceed four feet and no greater than one foot in diameter and weigh less than 40 pounds).

Residents may also use their own containers. In this case Waste Connections will collect up to 10 cans/bags of regular household trash, and six bags/bundles of yard waste (branches must be tied and bundled in lengths not to exceed four feet and no greater than one foot in diameter and weigh less than 40 pounds).
Waste Connections can take many large items, but there is a fee associated with this service depending on the type and amount of the items. Please call at least 48 hours in advance of your pickup to pay for the service and schedule the pickup.

Please ensure that all trash is bagged, and not loose inside the carts or cans. This prevents trash from flying or spilling out when being serviced, and may also reduce the smell for bears and other animals.

RECYCLING SERVICE DETAILS

The Waste Connections recycling service is single-stream and can be mixed together in one bin or tote. Please see the Single-Stream Recycling Guidelines for more details. If you choose not to use a bin, please do not bag your recycling, as it may be mistaken as trash. Recycling stickers are available at the Ranch House to label recycling containers as needed.

HOLIDAY PICKUP SCHEDULE

Waste Connections observes the following holidays:

New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day (unless the holiday falls on a weekend day, in which case the regular schedule is followed). During these holiday weeks, trash removal will be delayed one day if your scheduled pickup falls on or after the holiday (i.e. if a holiday falls on a Wednesday, trash removal will be delayed one day for everyone scheduled on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.)

TRASH DELAY NOTIFICATIONS

Waste Connections offers an auto-dial service called Call Fire to notify customers of any changes in trash pickup days. If you are interested in being notified through this service, you can sign up at www.wcdenver.com/contact/. Complete the required information and in the comment section at the bottom of the page, explain that you are a Ken-Caryl resident seeking to sign up for the Call Fire service.

OPTIONAL TRASH/RECYCLING TOTES

Residents have the option of continuing to use their own trash and recycling containers (either trash cans or bags) or of using 96-gallon totes provided at no charge by Waste Connections. The totes have wheels and are 42 inches tall, the top measures 30×34 inches, and the bottom is 24×24 inches.

If you prefer to use the totes, send an email to kencarylco@wasteconnections.com, say that you want to sign up for totes and provide your name, address, email address and phone number. You can request both trash and recycling totes, just a trash tote, or just a recycling tote.

Contractor Reference Online Database

A database of contractor references provided by residents is available on this site. This database was created in an effort to assist homeowners who wish to hire professionals in making improvements or repairs to their property. The database contains references provided by homeowners who have had work done on their home and are willing to share information for the benefit of their Ken-Caryl neighbors. To submit your reference to the online database, see the online form below. The database is continuing to grow, so check back periodically for more submissions. Click on the categories below to view the references.

Contractor References By Category:

Note: If you don’t see a category listed for the service you are looking for, check the miscellaneous section. 

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association does not investigate the resident comments in the Reference Books or online database and makes no representations as to the objectivity or accuracy of any comments. Individuals should not rely solely upon these comments when making a decision on whether to employ any particular contractor. Instead, such hiring decisions should be made based upon the due diligence undertaken by the individuals seeking to employ a contractor. The Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association assumes no responsibility for resident comments in the Reference Books or the online database.

Provide a Contractor Reference

Ken-Caryl Ranch encourages you to submit a contractor reference and be included in our online database as a service to residents. You can fill out the online form here. Please note that your contact information will not be published in our online database. If you prefer to fill out a paper form, please complete and return a Contractor Reference Paper Form.

Ken-Caryl Ranch Becomes a Firewise Community

Ken-Caryl Ranch is taking action to reduce our wildfire risk and improve safety. The community has received recognition status as a Firewise Community. There are more than 1,200 recognized Firewise communities across the nation taking action and ownership in preparing and protecting their homes against the threat of wildfire. Using a five-step process, communities develop an action plan that guides their residential risk reduction activities, while engaging and encouraging their neighbors to become active participants in building a safer place to live.
