In August of 2010, the City of Manitou Springs initiated a residential Single Hauler Waste and Recyclables Program becoming the first community is southern Colorado to do so. This took years of talks and meetings (PDF) but now there are fewer trash trucks on our streets and they only come on one day instead of several.
Bestway Disposal is the City's current trash/recycling contractor and Tuesday is the City wide trash/recycling pick-up day.
Bestway Disposal now offers bear-proof containers through its Bear Proof Container Program. Please note that Bestway Disposal will only service containers purchased through the Bestway Bear Proof Container Program. View more information on the containers (PDF). To order a bear-proof container, contact Bestway Disposal at 719-633-8709.
