Trash Removal

Trash & Recycling


The Cordillera Property Owners Association (CPOA) provides residential trash and recycling services to Cordillera Property Owners. This program is not intended for contractors or construction debris. Cordillera's designated contractor is Vail Honeywagon.

Schedule


Trash is picked up every Tuesday except when a holiday falls on either Monday or Tuesday, in which case Cordillera's trash will be picked up on Wednesday. Recycling is picked up every other week. For complete schedules visit Vail Honeywagon's website

Trash containers may be at the curb between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. the day of pickup.  If property owners need additional trash containers, please contact the administration office.

Community Operation Dumpsters


In addition to curbside trash and recycling service, dumpsters are available behind community operation.  Again, these are not to be used by contractors, landscapers or by people outside of Cordillera.  

Acceptable Items for Cordillera Dumpsters

Trash: Non-hazardous residential solid waste e.g. household trash. 
Recycling: All glass beverage containers (all colors); aluminum, steel and tin cans; rinsed and empty plastic containers (#1 through #7); cleaned and flattened corrugated cardboard boxes (corrugated means it has an undulating layer between two flat layers); office paper (not shredded); magazines and newspapers. 
 
Note: Please remove recycling items from plastic bags. Plastic bags are not recyclable when holding other recycling materials. Plastic bags contaminate the whole dumpster, thus rendering the whole dumpster trash. 

Unacceptable Items for Cordillera Dumpsters


Trash: No hazardous waste including paints, motor oil, antifreeze, fertilizers, fuels, household cleaners, pesticides, pool chemicals, solvents and thinners; batteries; fluorescent light bulbs; refrigerators and freezers; e-waste, televisions, computers and printers; prescription drugs; tires and yard waste. 
 
Recycling: No plastic bags or materials in plastic bags; plastic utensils; needles or syringes; ceramics or Pyrex; Styrofoam; hazardous materials; napkins or paper towels; box board (cereal boxes); shredded paper; mirrors; light bulbs; dishes; six-pack holders; #7 PLA plastics. 
When in doubt, keep it out!
 
Unacceptable trash and recycling items can be taken to the Eagle County Solid Waste & Recycling facility (the dump) located in Wolcott.
