UTILITIES

Colorado Springs Utilities offers Electric, Gas, and Water, and services most of the Colorado Springs area.  Some of the surrounding areas use other various companies for utilities, though. There are also several trash companies offering trash services in the area. We recommend researching Yelp and the BBB for the best trash company in your area (I personally use Bestway and have nothing but great reviews for them!).
