Bear Season Advisory
Animal Resistant Containers are mandatory in most neighborhoods! Please be sure to place residential containers out only on trash days and after pick-up please bring them back inside.

If you live in an area that requires animal resistant containers, you are required to provide and maintain your own certified containers. Certified containers are usually available at Ace hardware in Vail, Home Depot in Avon, and Ace Hardware in Gypsum.

*Please note that bears in the Rocky Mountains can be persistent when pursuing a tasty treat from your trash and no plastic container is completely bear-proof so it is important that you store your animal-resistant trash receptacle in a secure place between collection services.

Curbside recycling services can be added to any residential account, please ask our customer service representatives for details or check out our recycling page to see which type of recycling sorting is required in your area.
