Free SCRAPS Composting Containers:
The Pitkin County Landfill offers FREE 6 1/2 gallon sealed gasket containers for food waste composting. It has a very tight lid that prevents odors from escaping. Please keep in mind these containers are NOT bear-proof and need to be stored indoors. Call (970) 429-2880 for details.
The dumpster and collection site located at the Public Works facility is NOT for yard waste and green composting. Those items, such as grass clippings, leaves, branches, etc. can be taken to the Pitkin County Landfill for composting.
During the fall each year, the Town does provide a composting bin at the Town Park Rodeo Lot for composting fall leaves only.
The bear-proof composting container is available for drop offs 24/7 at the Public Works facility, near the administrative offices. Turn left at the entrance.:
