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.
