Contact Vail Honeywagon at (970) 476-3511 for repairs to lids and latches.


Trash containers may be at the curb between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on the day of pickup. Trash containers may not be left out overnight (day prior or day of). Trash containers left out past authorized hours will be tagged. Property owners who leave trash containers out repeatedly will be fined. Recycling containers are not required to be bear resistant. Additional trash outside of the one container is subject to additional charges. Examples include lawn debris, bags of trash, appliances, construction material, carpet, etc.

Acceptable Trash and Recycling Items

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.
