The new waste and recycling code took effect in January 2019. The goal of the code is to offer subscribers of trash service options in the size of trash can they need, increase diversion of recyclable materials and allow the county to collect more diversion data (which will allow us to streamline and modify diversion programs).

Haulers have until July 2019 to implement the new program with their customers. For more information on the program contact the Pitkin County Solid Waste Center at 970-429-2880, or by email at Check back often for updates and education materials on the new program.
