Eagle wants locals to talk about trash

EAGLE — Trash collection one of the town’s most unheralded services, but it’s also one that residents completely depend upon.

During the next few weeks, the town of Eagle wants to find out what residents think of their current trash collection service and glean information about what they would like to see expanded in the future. Residents who have signed up for on-line bill payment have already received a notification about the survey and other residents will be notified via mailed postcards next week.

In March, the Eagle Town Board approved a one year contract extension with Vail Honeywagon — the private firm that provides trash collection service for Eagle.

“It is the board’s intent to seek citizen input on current services and possible adjustments to services,” said Eagle Town Manager John Stavney.

Eagle’s contract with Vail Honeywagon will automatically renew unless the town notifies the company 180 days prior to the end of the term. The notification deadline is Oct. 3.

The Survey Monkey survey deals with quality and scope of trash collection services. The questions include possible changes to recycling and to management of Eagle’s yard waste facility.

“Based on feedback, staff will decide whether to convene a work group, and then make a recommendation to the board,” said Stavney.

The survey will be open through Aug. 14 and prizes will be distributed to random respondents.
