Request to Change Residential Refuse Collection Services

The Deputy Clerk/Treasurer is responsible for the City's utility billing and can be reached at 970-325-7064.

In 2013 the City adopted a new City Code which now allows a property owner or association to opt out of residential refuse service if they qualify as stated in Ouray City Code Sections 12-1-C and 12-1-D.

If the qualifications are met, the Request to Change Residential Refuse Collection Service form can be completed and submitted to the City Clerk/Treasurer at City Hall, mailed to P.O. Box 468, or emailed to info@cityofouray.com. Requests will be processed in accordance with Ouray City Code Section 12-1-D.
