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.

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.


Residents may request one 96-gallon trash tote that will be provided by Waste Connections at no additional charge (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).

Per our current contract with Waste Connections, recycling pick-ups will continue on a weekly basis until Ken-Caryl officially transitions to bi-weekly recycling collection services on May 1, 2024. Once the new contract goes into effect, only recycling in approved Waste Connections totes will be collected. To accommodate resident preferences and needs, residents may request recycling totes in pre-approved 64-gallon or 96-gallon sizes. Residents may also request additional recycling totes using the form found by following the link below. A $6 monthly fee that will be billed to you directly by Waste Connections.

The delivery of the new recycling totes will be prioritized prior to the start of bi-weekly recycling collection services on May 1; however, residents may also request new trash collection totes in either 64-gallon or 96-gallon sizes via this form that will be kept on file and delivered at a later date. Residents will receive delivery information once it becomes available.

The deadline to order containers is Friday, March 15. 

Waste and Recycling Container Order Form

Please stay tuned to all our communications channels for any additional information or updates. Questions? Please contact Darci Cross at

Please note: If you have a Waste Connections tote with an orange lid, you are not required to place an order to replace your tote. Waste Connections will take your small bins once they drop off your new totes, just mark it with “Trash, please take.” Due to room, it may take a few trips to collect all of these bins, so please be patient. They will be collected at no charge. Have a tote from another trash provider? Waste Connections stickers are available at the Ranch House for pick-up to cover your previous provider’s logo. Residents are also encouraged to bring any old bins to Ken-Caryl’s Annual Recycling & Clean-Up event at the Ranch House on May 4. Stay tuned – event details to come!

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 contact Waste Connections at least 48 hours in advance of your pickup to pay for the service and schedule the pickup at or email

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.

  • Need a new recycling or trash tote? (See below for additional info about totes.)
  • Want to schedule and pay for pick-up for a bulk item (mattress, furniture, etc.)?
  • Was there a missed pick-up (and your trash was out by 7 a.m.)?
  • Have a question, compliment or concern?

You can contact Waste Connections in any of these ways:

  1. Send an email to
  2. Visit choose from their options (bulk item pick-up, missed pick-up, etc.)
  3. Contact Waste Connections by phone at 303-288-2100. For the fastest response time, we highly recommend using email or the website.

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.


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.)


Never miss your collection day again! WasteConnect Mobile App will send reminders, Service Alerts for collection delays and has resources for how to properly dispose of materials. Use the buttons below to get the WasteConnect Mobile App.

Waste Connections also offers an auto-dial service that will call with any changes in trash pickup days. If you are interested in being notified through this service, you can email and ask to add your phone number to your account to receive phone notifications. They will need your address and phone number in the email.

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.

Do you recommend this contractor? Yes

Comments: Seven years ago, we had Jeannie and her company remodel our Master Bathroom and it was a success.  Last month we remodeled two other bathrooms and Jeannie and her company, Sisters Construction, did a wonderful job remodeling them.  Jim got things started, then Arty did most of the work.  Both are very professional, knowledgeable and hardworking. Arty replaced several floor tiles that he thought may have had insufficient grout under them because he didn’t want us to end up with a cracked tile later on.   A lot of other contractors wouldn’t have noticed this or wouldn’t have bothered with it. This just shows how conscientious they are.  Jeannie and all of her staff are courteous, professional and committed to quality.  Jeannie provides fair estimates and works with her customers on changes or problems.  We highly recommend Jeannie and Sisters Construction for any of your remodeling needs.

Comments: Chris Benoit at Green Mountain Designs was fantastic, he did a large Allan Block retaining wall for me that backed to an open space pathway.  Included in my project was demo of the failing timber retaining wall and replacement of my fence. The wall was about 80 feet long and 9 feet high, had to be engineer designed, and he followed the design plans.  Chris was hands on, was there every day, and did most of the work himself with a one or two-man crew.  He is personable, fair/honest, works hard, has great attention to detail, and he knows what he was doing and took pride in it.  I bid out the job and received estimates from 5 firms of various sizes and found the larger firms wanted to charge a very high premium.  I chose Chris because of good references and examples of his previous walls, he is a small businessman, and had a good competitive price.  He does all sorts of landscaping projects, stonework, pavers, sprinkler, etc…  You can find his business website at  I highly recommend Chris to anyone and would use him myself in the future.

Comments: The Best Painters!  Excellent Job!  Look at your neighbors house and then see 11342 Main Range Trail.   Great Communication.  Will never again even think of going anywhere else.  Go ahead and give your money to someone else, if you dare.   They are very reliable as they show up on time.  Very friendly and respectful.  They fixed an exterior wood frame due to woodpecker damage and a small piece of cement.  Plus fixed gaps where driveway meet garage to avoid water damage.   The job was done on time and cost.  Approximately 15-20% less than the big guys…you know who…look for the yard signs and then call their project managers and watch your price escalate…NOT with CLEAR CHOICE PAINTERS!

Vivax Pros

Contractor Name and/or Company: Vivax Pros
Contractor Phone Number: (720) 282-1758

Date Service Performed: Sept. 27, 2021
What type of service: Painting
Do you recommend this contractor? Yes

Comments: We just got our house painted, and I wanted to say how great a job Vivax Pros did for us! We chose Vivax because Kiki, who did our estimate, found more problems that needed to be addressed before painting could be done than any other company we talked to. Our house is over thirty years old and had the kind of siding issues that a thirty year old house here often has.  By seeing the problems well before painting was scheduled, Kiki enabled us to schedule our own carpenter to do the work. The other companies we talked to would have found the same problems while painting, delaying the job and probably forcing us to use their siding people, so we really appreciated Kiki’s diligence before the job even started.

Matt, our project manager, and Felix and Oscar, our painting crew, were fantastic throughout the job. Matt did a walk through with us before the job began, and asked questions we had not thought of.  He statued the job daily and was available to answer any questions or problems we had  throughout the painting process. Felix and Oscar were friendly, professional, careful, knowledgeable, dependable and communicative. They were also excellent painters! They cleaned the work area thoroughly when they were through for the day, something that other painters do not always do, and they put in all the painting time that the job required. Matt did a painstaking after job walk through with us and found and fixed the few small details needed to complete the job.

And Vivax, a locally owned company in business for more than 16 years, offers a choice of warranties, which I believe is very unusual in the house painting industry. We haven’t used our warranty yet, of course, but they have painted many homes in this area,  and all the customers we spoke to before we chose them were very happy with their work and with their warranty service.

If you are looking for excellent house painters, we enthusiastically recommend Vivax Pros!

Sloan Windows and Construction

Contractor Name and/or Company: Sloan Windows and Construction
Contractor Phone Number: (720) 253-8776

Service Provided: Windows replaced (entire house)
Date Service Performed: 07/14/2020
Does the resident recommend the contractor? Yes

Comments: I am not accustomed to being actually happy, without reservations, about the job a contractor does; there are almost
always unpleasant surprises or at least irritations. But I couldn’t be happier about the job Sloan Windows and Construction did for me,
replacing all of the original windows of my house (and a sliding glass door). The house is now much more functional (as well as
attractive), the process was MUCH less invasive or otherwise uncomfortable than I was fearing/expecting, and they did it all for a very
competitive price. And with — truly — no unpleasantness dealing with them, anywhere in the process. These guys primarily install
Anlin Windows, as very high quality (info at but cost effective wrt other major brands — and the windows come with a
double-lifetime guarantee, including labor, so truly no future window-related costs for self and next owner of house, and covers
everything about the windows. Sloan Windows and Construction is a smallish/family-run company, and their customer
service/accommodation couldn’t be better. I was needing my windows replaced in the middle of COVID-19, so one major concern was
minimizing my exposure; they were able to do almost the entire job from the outside (with my drapes closed as an additional barrier);
and the small amount of inside work was all done near the end by one individual, a son of the owner, masked etc. (and they even
offered to use a full protective suit if I wanted). I had interviewed a number of other window installers before choosing Sloan
(outside, at least six feet apart!) and none came remotely close to Sloan on any of several criteria — including a basic sense of their
integrity and trustworthiness (and non… sliminess!). I was also very pleased at the highly technical discussions and clarifications I
could have about the windows and my options — plus a zillion follow up questions — in deciding whether to go with them; Anton
Sloan (the owner, and primary salesperson) was solidly knowledgeable and refreshingly non-evasive. And although I probably would
have been willing to pay something of a premium for the comfort level I had dealing with Sloan Windows, their bid actually came in
LESS expensive than any of the others I had been considering — significantly less than some. (Nor were there ANY cost surprises at
the end.) The team installing my windows included three of Anton’s sons and a son-in-law-to-be (plus an old friend of one of the
sons); they worked together very efficiently, and clearly safely (watching out for one another). I was also pleasantly surprised at how
courteous and friendly and just plain nice they all were when I would come out to see how work was coming, and how informative. (I
certainly couldn’t maintain what social skills I have hours into working hard in the hot sun!) Truly a first class window installation

Pella Windows and Doors of Colorado, Inc. Clif Humphress

Contractor Name and/or Company: Pella Windows and Doors of Colorado, Inc. Clif Humphress
Contractor Phone Number: (303) 819-1867

Date Service Performed: July 1- 5, 2019
Service Provided: Replaced windows and patio door
Does the resident recommend the contractor? Yes

Comments: We decided to replace almost all of the original windows and the patio door in our 1988 Richmond home. We received
quotes from four window companies. We were hoping to replace the windows with the original wood windows, as we wanted to keep
the original look, beauty and feel of the wood design. We also wanted to keep the original interior wood trim design and color (to
match the other interior wood trim style and color). Everyone offered some type of fiberglass composite window (Fibrex, etc), and a
straight vinyl product, as well as a wood product. All of the quotes for the vinyl or the composite materials were pretty close between
companies. But if we wanted the wood windows, it was going to be as much as a third more expensive, (except Pella). We didn’t think
we were going to be able to afford the wood windows. However, Pella’s final quote for the complete wood windows, with aluminum
clad exterior, and patio door, was roughly equivalent to the others composite window and patio door quotes. We were very pleased
with the Project Consultant, Clif Humpress, when he visited to measure, give a price quote, and explain the windows and the process
to us. He was very thorough, patient, detailed, and answered all of our questions. He was willing to negotiate the price down so that
the wood windows and door nearly matched the other company’s composite prices. The installation was schedule for 7/1/19, and
after an attempt to delay the start by two weeks, they found another qualified crew and started on time. We had a total of 19 holes and
21 windows replaced (some holes had more than one window according to the method used to count windows), and the patio door.
The lead installer and his crew of three were very professional, considerate and hardworking throughout the four day project. (That’s
right, they completed the entire project in just under four full days, not including the fourth of July). They kept the work areas clean,
used runners on the areas inside the house where they walked and worked, and covered areas with plastic sheets where construction
dust would be a factor. They even brought in an extra crew on the last day to complete the project on time. I watched them install
some of the windows, insulation, cladding and outside and inside trim. It was all very well done. The windows and patio door all fit
properly. The inside trim work is excellent and matches perfectly the replaced trim style and color. We are very pleased with the final
windows and patio door. I would highly recommend this company and Project Manager, especially if you want to replace current
wood windows, and would like to keep the same, or similar, look.
