Waste Services Survey

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Goals of this Survey:

This spring, the City’s five-year waste hauling contract will expire with the current hauler GFL Environmental (formerly Alpine Waste & Recycling). The City will re-bid for the next 5-year contract and include resident’s recommendations for improvements to the program. All residents (customers and non-customers) are welcome to submit input. With this feedback, the City hopes to achieve the following:

  • Identify areas of improvement to existing services
  • Measure interest in new/expanded services
  • Prioritize customer’s experience

History of Golden’s PAYT waste and recycling program:

In 2007, City Council established specific goals for each area of sustainability- building, economic health, education and communications, energy, solid waste and recycling, transportation and water. The specific goal for solid waste and recycling is to reduce Golden’s solid waste stream contribution by 25% by 2017. To achieve this the City proposed a single hauler waste program and began to extensively gather citizen input.

In 2010, City Council passed Ordinance 1868 allowing the City to contract with Waste Management for waste and recycling services for residential properties, creating the City of Golden Pay-As-You-Throw waste and recycling program.

In 2015, the Golden City Council selected Alpine Waste & Recycling for a new 5-year waste hauling contract. Alpine Waste & Recycling was chosen for their low prices and ability to provide current and future services required by the Golden community. With this contract, the optional compost program was expanded to include every single family neighborhood in the city.

City of Golden PAYT waste and recycling program currently provides more than 4,500 households in Golden with trash and recycling services, and provides over 600 customers with composting service. A full list of current services offered by the program can be found at www.cityofgolden.net/live/residents-guide/trash-recycling.
