Welcome to Vail

Vail is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Which is why those of us lucky enough to live, visit, and play here care about keeping our footprint small, our resources plentiful, and our contribution to sustainability top of mind. It’s the least we can do for the place we all love.


Here's a Wild Idea: We want to turn your creekside landscaping into a work of art.

Recycling Events & Announcements

Welcome to Vail and Happy Holidays! Please remember that wrapping paper, tissue paper, ribbons and bows, other giftwrap, styrofoam, and film plastic packaging are not recyclable and should be placed in your home trash and not recycling.

Coffee cups and compostable plastics are also not recyclable and should be placed in the trash or compost if listed and available. When you are around town and finished with these items, take a second and make sure you toss them in the right bin!

Gore Creek Events & Announcements

Please join Town of Vail for another installment of Lunch with the Locals!


It's all part of our sustainability plan to keep Vail beautiful.


In July 2014, Vail launched an ambitious sustainability initiative that made recycling mandatory, instituted wildlife-resistant containers, and launched a public information campaign, which you just happen to be experiencing right now.
