What does an overfill charge on my bill mean?

City of Durango collections requires that the lids on trash and recycling containers and dumpsters must be completely closed in order to be serviced properly. If you overfill your container, and the lid does not close, this may interfere with the collections process and you may be subject to an additional charge.

If you think you will regularly generate more material in a week than what will fit into a 60-gallon container, please call 375-5004 to request a larger 90-gallon container.
