The City of Fort Collins and it’s citizens voted on a single hauler contract for Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste in 2022. In September of 2024, Republic Services will service the contract for Fort Collins for the next five years.

The good news? Residents will get weekly 95 gallon recycling, and weekly 95 gallon yard waste recycling from Spring to Autumn. This will double the amount of recycling, and give almost every resident a yard waste bin.

The bad news? Our rates are going up, and they already did on January 1st of 2024.

Compost Queen can help you save money and the planet, all at the same time!

Take the scale down challenge – move your service from a large can to a small can, and you can get weekly composting and still save $1 per month!

It sounds scary at first, but up to 40% of your household waste is compostable. With double the recycling collection and weekly yard waste during the growing season, our household (with a toddler!) only produces about two bags of trash per week.

You’ll save $36 per month by sizing down your trash service from Large to Small, giving you the budget for weekly curbside composting.
