Free Recycling Tours

Join us for a FREE tour of the Eagle County recycling, landfill, and household hazardous waste facilities and the compost facility at Vail Honeywagon! This guided tour is open to all through our quarterly community tours. Free private tours can also be scheduled for school groups, community groups, businesses, and more.

Recycling can be confusing. Download the free Waste Wizard app, the only Eagle County specific recycling app to answer all of your recycling questions!

Tours last about 3 hours. Once you have signed up you will be contacted with information. Registration is required.

Please note: children are welcome on the quarterly community tours, however, they are geared toward an adult audience and can be dense. School tours can be requested and altered for a younger audience.

The Recycled Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) began operations in January 2010. This facility is designed to process for market the recycled materials collected in Eagle County and adjoining jurisdictions. Having this facility in place and operational removes the barrier to our local recycling programs of distance-to-market.

Collected materials are separated, baled and readied for direct shipment to end users. The facility utilizes both mechanized and manual sorting techniques to separate all recycled materials.

The Household Hazardous Waste Facility is a place where residents and businesses can dispose of old chemicals, prescription drugs, household hazardous waste, and electronic waste. It offers a safe way to properly dispose of these materials to help prevent them from getting into the waste stream and polluting the environment.
