Trash and Recycling

Trash 

Do you need trash service?  There are several options depending on where you live for trash services.  The City of Durango offers curbside pickup for trash and recycling for a fee if you live in town.  For those who live out of town, there are private haulers.  La Plata County Government does not provide trash services to individuals, but offers two Transfer Station locations for trash and recycling drop off.

La Plata County offers two locations for trash and recycling drop off in Bayfield and Marvel.  For specific information, please call 970-749-1335 or 970-382-6376.
