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.


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 schedule visit Vail Honeywagon's website

Trash Containers

Cordillera Property Owners are required to use bear resistant containers when their trash and garbage is at the street. The CPOA and Vail Honeywagon provide bear resistant containers to all property owners. Bear resistant containers are intended to “resist” the efforts of a bear to gain entry. When trash containers are at the street, the lids must be completely closed and the latches secured.  

Trash containers may be at the curb between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. the day of pickup. Trash containers may not be out overnight when the bears are most active. Trash containers left out past authorized hours will be tagged.  Property owners who leave trash containers out repeatedly will be fined.  

If property owners need additional trash containers, please contact the Vail Honeywagon.

Community Operation Dumpsters (Single Stream Recycling)

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.
