In addition to providing you with high-quality hauling services, the Town is committed to upholding the Town’s commitment to environmental resiliency and sustainability. That is why, beginning January 1, 2022, the Town will begin hosting its very own residential drop-off location to compost residential food waste!
The bear-proof container will be located at the Public Works facility, and there will be NO ADDITIONAL COSTS to our customers for the use of this service and dropping off compostable materials. The container will be accessible 24/7, and you can make a drop off anytime!
The composting dumpster will take the place of the electronics recycling container that has previously been available. Electronics can still be recycled and disposed of properly at the Pitkin County Landfill, and they offer a waste allowance program to make it free for qualifying residents.
Follow the link below to learn more about the waste allowance program, disposing of hazardous waste, and how to receive a FREE food waste composting container from the Pitkin County Landfill to begin composting in the New Year.
