The High Country Conservation Center is inviting residents to attend information sessions about changes that are coming to curbside waste collection in Frisco and Breckenridge.

The sessions are aimed at helping residents better understand the new pay-as-you-throw waste program, according to a news release from the conservation organization.

Pay-as-you-throw waste programs aim to provide an economic incentive to reduce waste and recycle more. Services include recycling along with household trash pickup, offering differing price points for bins. One of the focuses of the program is to increase the amount of waste being diverted from landfills to 40% by 2035. 

The sessions are scheduled for 6 p.m. April 5 at the Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge (621 Recreation Way) and 6 p.m. April 6 at the Breckenridge Recreation Center Multipurpose Room (880 Airport Road). 

A virtual presentation will also be held at 5:30 p.m. on May 11. To register for the virtual presentation visit

Waste providers will have pay-as-you-throw waste programs in place by Oct. 1 or sooner, according to the news release.
