The Town of Mountain Village  is currently working to achieve zero-waste, which means reducing the amount of trash sent to landfills from our community.

Food and yard waste can take up as much as 30 percent of your trash bin. By composting, you can significantly reduce the amount of waste you send to the landfill, and help the Mountain Village community achieve our zero-waste goals. The Town of Mountain Village’s is offering a rebate of 30% on composting services through the Composting Incentive Program. The program is open to businesses and homeowners associations (HOAs) located in Mountain Village. The Town also has free 2.5-gallon at-home collection buckets available for use by HOAs.

The incentive is made possible in collaboration with San Miguel County through a grant from the USDA. This program is expected to run through April 2025.
