Resident outreach to inform a Request for Proposals (RFP) process to select single-hauler contractor
The City of Glenwood Springs is in early stages of planning for a city-wide residential trash and recycling collection program. The program aims to reduce truck traffic on our streets, increase correct recycling, reduce the number of recyclables being thrown away, and incentivize overall waste reduction. To accomplish this, the program will utilize volume-based pricing also known as “pay as you throw”. More information is available on the project webpage at www.cogs.us/PAYT.
Pay as you throw (PAYT) means the price of trash service will be based on how much trash you produce, so the less trash you produce, the less the service costs. This program will include both trash and recycling service for all city residents in single-family residences and multifamily residences less than seven units.
In preparation for the request for proposals (RFP) process, the City wants to hear from you. Share your comments on trash and recycling needs in the community now through October at an upcoming pop-up event or visit www.cogs.us/PAYT.
Stop by a pop-up event to learn more about the upcoming change to city-wide trash and recycling service.
