Garbage tote size-based fee

The costs of each garbage tote size are outlined below for 2018. The single solid waste fee, as determined by the size of your garbage tote, also covers the cost of collection and processing of recycling and organics. There is no additional charge for recycling and organics totes. Garbage tote sizes can be exchanged once per year. The deadline to request a tote size exchange for 2019 was September 30, 2018.

Recycling and Organics tote sizes

At this time, the District only has the medium size (65 gal/246 litre) recycling totes available. The majority of organics totes are also the medium size, however a limited number of small organics totes (32 gallon/120 litre) have been provided to townhouse residents.
