Regular Garbage Pick-up Day February 20th
The next Garbage & Recycling pick-up day is Tuesday, February 20th. No delays due to the Presidents Day holiday.
Change to Trash Container Delivery Schedule
Please note the following change to the trash container delivery schedule:
The smaller trash containers being delivered to Star Canyon were delayed in their arrival. Therefore, the containers will arrive to the neighborhood Friday, February 9th. They will then be distributed to Star Canyon. The important change to note is that Alpine Waste & Recycling will be picking up containers that are not wanted by homeowners on Wednesday, February 14. If you wish to have your old trash container removed or the container that was delivered by Alpine taken away, please have it out on the curb by 7:00 am on Wednesday, February 14th. If you wish to keep your new container, it must be removed from the street by the same time.
New Trash System: Timeline
2/5-2/9 - New Trash Carts to be delivered to each TrailMark home.
2/13 - Any type of container may be used for trash and recycling.
From Alpine Waste & Recycling: "You can still use your old container(s). We know this is a transition and will take time for everyone to be on the same page. We will actually be sending the Rear Load truck through for the next few weeks while homeowners get used to placing containers in the correct spot."
2/14 - Homeowners may leave any trash container at the curb for pick-up and/or disposal by Alpine Waste & Recycling.
Timeline subject to change.

From the Common Area Committee
Some of you may have noticed that there are two benches out at the top of the sled hill. This is news to many, because we did not have much snow until last weekend. The plan is to work with South Suburban Parks and Rec District to erect two permanent benches at the top of the sled hill. Eventually we will build a trail from the parking lot to the top of the hill, then on to the East to connect to the trail heading north into the open area. We hope you enjoy having a place to sit while the kids enjoy Hogback Sled Hill.
With the changes to the trash containers, it is a good time to remind everyone that it is required that even their recycling is in a container with a lid. This will prevent any winds from spreading trash and any foraging animals from disturbing the trash and making a mess of your yard and our open space. Enjoy our beautiful Colorado Winter.

Trash & Recycling Q&A
Following are some common questions about the upcoming trash service change, as well as some important information about this change that will take place in TrailMark HOA.
The TrailMark Community will be changing over to a “side-load” residential cart trash system. There are a few goals associated with this change. One main goal is to ensure the neighborhood remains clean - By having containers with lids, animals and wind are less likely to spread trash and recycle all over the streets and yards.
Currently, the dates for the transition are as follows:
Q: What about the containers I already have?
A: You have a few choices on this matter: You may choose to make the container you currently have a recycle container by requesting recycle stickers from the management company. Recycling service is not currently changing and will remain the same, for now. The drivers will know to pick up the container as recycle if the recycle stickers are placed on the container.
You can also use the container as an extra bin for yard waste. If you have an Alpine container already, this is less of an issue. However, if you have a container that is not an Alpine container and decide to use that container still, Alpine will not be responsible for damage to the container.
You may have Alpine dispose of the container for you. If you would like Alpine to dispose of the container, then it will need to be left out by the curb the final day of container delivery in February. Currently, that is scheduled for Friday, February 9th. That date will also be posted on the TrailMark website once finalized.
Q: What if I do not want the container from Alpine?
If you do not want the container from Alpine, you will need to leave it by the curb on February 9th. Alpine will take any carts left by the curb after they are done delivering the containers. If you would like to continue using the container you already have, then Alpine will not take responsibility for any damage done to the container. If you already have an Alpine container, you can keep your old one and leave the new one out for pick-up. Or you can take your old container to the curb and keep the new one. However, all trash must be in a container to be picked up. If you do not have the trash in a container, it will be left.
Q: Can I get a smaller can delivered?
Every single-family home will be delivered a 95-gallon container and every condo/patio home will be delivered a 68-gallon container. If you would like the 68-gallon instead, you must take the 95-gallon container up to the Alpine Waste and Recycling office at 7373 Washington Street, Denver, 80229. They will change out the 95-gallon container with a 68-gallon container at their office. This applies if you would like a larger container and live in a condo/patio home as well.
Q: What about trash that does not fit in the container?
It is important to note that large item pick-up has not changed. If you need a large item picked up, you must call Alpine before trash day and they will send a separate truck to pick up the item. If items are not called in before trash day, they will not be picked up.
Q: Will the recycling pick-up change?
Recycling will not be changing yet. Perhaps in the future, but Alpine is focusing on changing trash service right now. The only recycling change is that you can use old trash containers for recycle pick-up. You may request stickers from the Property Manager, place them on a container, and Alpine will pick it up as recycling. The HOA would like to see as many people as possible move to recycle containers with lids to ensure the neighborhood stays as clean as possible.
Q: What about extra yard waste in the summer?
Currently the management company and Alpine are working on a plan for this. Extra containers are always an option for homeowners. However, alternative options are being discussed. Further communication will be provided once a solution has been presented and approved by the Board.
Q: What if I want more than one container?
Please call Alpine Waste and Recycling and request another container. However, only the 1 cart is free of charge. Additional cart prices and dimensions are listed below.
