2021 Recycling Guidelines

On Tuesday, March 19, 2019, the Board of Trustees approved a single trash hauling contract to provide residential trash and recycling service within the Town of Carbondale. Below are some frequently asked questions and answers related to the new residential trash and recycling service.

Since fall 2017, the Carbondale Trustees have discussed offering trash hauling services at 15 Town Board meetings open to the public. At these meetings public input was gathered, and considered every step along the decision-making process. Public input was also gathered via on-line survey, at the Farmers Market, during First Friday festivities, and at an open-house meeting at Town Hall. 

From this the Trustees identified 3 goals for the way Carbondale manages solid waste/trash. The 3 goals identified were:

  • To reduce the impact of trash hauling services on our streets,
  • To decrease wildlife interactions with bears and other wildlife, and
  • To do our part as a community to reduce the amount of trash going into landfills.

Below are some frequently asked questions and answers related to the new residential trash and recycling service. If you have additional questions please email trash@carbondaleco.net or call the Town of Carbondale Trash Hauling Services Department direct at 970-510-1202.
