Utilities

The Town of Eagle is responsible for providing the water, wastewater (sewer), and trash services for the residents and businesses within Town limits and water service to nearby residential developments in unincorporated Eagle County.

Utility Increases



Utility Increases were approved and planned for in 2005 in anticipation of construction of the Lower Basin Water Treatment Plan. This began with recommended 5% annual increases. In Fall of 2014 it was determined a 10% increase was necessary in 2015 and 2016. Due to the impact on residents facing these increases, there was only a 5% increase recommended in 2016. Additional information regarding the decision process for increasing rates can be found here. Town of Eagle 2015 Utility Fee Increase

Trash & Recycling Service

The Town handles billing of trash service, however we contract out trash service to Vail Honeywagon. They use an automated truck designed to pick up Town designated cans only. All trash must be in these cans, otherwise extra trash will be picked up for a $15 fee. Cardboard it can be taken to the recycling bins at the Public Works office located at 1050 Chambers Ave. You may receive a second trash can for an additional $20.20 a month if 1 can is not adequate. Only on a case by case basis will we evaluate a special pickup.


For service related issues, please contact Vail Honeywagon at: 970-476-3511. Find your pickup dates click here: Vail Honeywagon Trash Schedule and to view the calendar here 2016 Schedule


Recycling

Curbside recycling is available to all Town of Eagle residents (non-commercial single family houses and residential developments 5 units or less) as part of the basic trash service through Vail Honeywagon. Two recycle bins are provided per residence: 1 for newspaper and 1 for co-mingled glass, plastics (#1-7), and aluminum. Additionally, there are bins for cardboard, paper, glass, plastics, and aluminum at the Public Works facility at 1050 Chambers Ave. Please visit Vail Honeywagon's website at www.vailhoneywagon.com or call 970-476-3511 for more information.
