Residential Curbside Collection Pilot Program

The Town of Vail and Vail Honeywagon are partnering to offer residential organic waste collection to select neighborhoods in the West Vail Area. This is a subscription based program that residents can sign up for to receive weekly organic waste collection and the Town is covering half of the cost for each resident who participates for up to one year. Space is limited in this program so sign up now. This will be a subscription-based program that requires a commitment to follow composting guidelines in exchange for access to the secure drop site containers.
