Waste service companies in Castle Pines
by Patte Smith
While there are many homeowner’s associations (HOAs) in the Castle Pines community and each one handles trash removal and recycling independently for its members, there are three main waste companies that serve the communities of Castle Pines Village, the City of Castle Pines, Happy Canyon, Surrey Ridge, and many of the unincorporated areas of the Castle Pines community.
Haulaway, Eagle Waste and Waste
Management all handle a large portion of the waste removal in the Castle Pines community. They each offer “single stream” recycling for customers. “Single stream” recycling allows residents to place all recyclables in a single recycle bin – no need to separate or sort items.
Paper products that can be recycled include: all white and colored paper, magazines, coated paper, folders-manila-coated or colored, adding machine tape, post-it notes, brochures, pamphlets, newspapers (including inserts but no plastic newspaper bags), junk mail, envelopes, computer printouts, posters, correspondence and direct mail. All paperboard (cereal and soda boxes) or cardboard must be completely flattened.
Plastic “washed out” recyclables #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, and #7 (any plastic product with the recycle symbol and a number), glass (colored or clear), aluminum, and tin cans (you may leave the labels on, but please remove the lids).
Items that cannot be recycled include: carbon paper, paper plates, paper cups, tissue paper, waxed paper, lunch bags, napkins, paper towels, candy wrappers, wax-lined cardboard, phone books, styrofoam, plastic bags (grocery, newspaper, or trash bags) oil, pesticides, hazardous material bottles or trash including food and organic waste.
