All recycling dropped off at Eagle County’s six community drop-off sites goes directly to the Eagle County Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). The Eagle County MRF is a state-of-the-art facility located at the Eagle County landfill in Wolcott. Materials are sorted and processed at the MRF, which opened in January 2010, and is owned and run by Eagle County government. We are very fortunate in Eagle County to have a local MRF and a forward-thinking government that supports recycling and environmental stewardship. For more info on the MRF, visit Eagle County’s website.
