Holiday Trash Pickup Reminder
Residents with curbside trash service are reminded to check with their trash removal company to determine if collection schedules will be affected by the holiday. Vail’s wildlife protection regulations prohibit placing trash outside for pick up other than from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the scheduled trash collection day. Residents also are reminded that if they haven’t already arranged for recycling pickup to contact their hauler and visit lovevail.org for information on how to recycle. Vail’s communitywide recycling ordinance became effective July 1, 2014. Also, it is illegal to deposit residential trash in public receptacles located at bus stops, parks and other public areas within the town.
