Plastic Bag Policies#
State and local leaders have made plastic pollution in Colorado a priority, and policies are now being implemented to reduce single-use plastics, starting with plastic bags at large retailers.
Curbside Trash Collection Services#
Fort Collins City Council has adopted several priorities to reach sustainability goals, one of which is to explore a contracted system for residential trash and recycling collection. In a contracted system, haulers compete for the chance to provide service to all single-family, duplex and small multifamily homes (with seven or fewer units) in a neighborhood. Households that want to use a different hauler can pay an opt-out fee. Communities in Colorado and across the U.S. have found that this type of system reduces the number of trucks in residential neighborhoods, makes prices more consistent, and increases opportunities for recycling and composting.
City Council passed Resolution 2022079 in a 4:2 vote on June 19, 2022 directing City staff to proceed with developing a Request For Proposal (RFP) for a single-hauler system for trash and recycling.
