Boulder County officials said community dumpsters will soon be made available throughout the county for people beginning to clean out their homes and businesses after days of rain and flooding.

Officials with the county said the dumpsters would be provided as soon as possible, but did not give a more specific timeline.

The Western Disposal transfer station at 5880 Butte Mill Rd. is also open, but officials are asking people to wait to head to the transfer station if possible to keep traffic open for emergency vehicles.
