Organic Yard Waste Rebate Program
Windsor Water Utility customers have the option of recycling organic yard waste with businesses such as A1 Organics in Eaton or Hageman's in Fort Collins to receive a one-time annual reimbursement of up to $10 by turning in a rebate application with proof of residents and purchase. Organic yard waste must be recycled with a legitimate organic waste center in order to qualify for the rebate. Completed applications can be dropped off at Windsor's Town Hall, 301 Walnut St., which is open Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and closed on weekends and holidays.
