Residential Trash Guidelines

Hide Featured Image

Please see guidelines below for residential garbage collection in Town.

Take steps to make sure carts stay in good working order and can be emptied easily.

  • Bag all trash, including cat litter, yard waste, and all other household waste
  • Do not fill the cart to the point where the lid cannot close and do not force the lid to lock on overfull carts
  • Cut down any large or bulky items to no more than 12 inches in length to prevent wedging in the cart
  • If you have a project where you expect to have excess trash or if you routinely have more trash than will fit inside a single cart with the lid closed, contact Town Hall to request additional carts

La Plata County manages the Bayfield Transfer Station for trash and recycling on County Road 223. Call 970-382-6376 for details and hours.
