Best Of 2010: Trash/Recycling Service

The last time I wrote about Bestway, it had just inked a deal to be the near-exclusive provider of trash service to residential customers in Manitou Springs. The move — meant to help the environment and reduce the number of noisy trucks in town — irked some residents, who felt Manitou City Council's decision infringed on their right to choose what companies to patronize. But Bestway general manager Judd Staton says his company has received a lot of positive phone calls since the switch. People especially seem to like Bestway's recycling program. It's single-stream (no sorting necessary), with once-a-week pickup, and only costs $5 a month if you also buy trash service from Bestway. Recycling isn't the only thing to like, Staton says. Bestway, which has been owned by the local Kiemel family since 1950, also goes beyond the call of duty. Forget to put out your can on trash day? The guys will knock on your door to remind you, or yank your can out themselves if it's in plain view. —J. Adrian Stanley
