Free Eagle County Recycling Drop-Sites

Recycling is a great way to divert a lot of the waste from daily life that would normally end up in a landfill. There are recycling services in the valley that pick up paper, cardboard, and other recyclable materials for a fee directly from your home. But did you know that there are also sites all along the valley where you can drop off your recyclable materials for free? This interactive map will help you find the drop site that is right for you and your recycling needs. After a big move or online order, consider bringing your recyclables to one of these sites so that they can avoid the landfill and be given new life elsewhere.

All of the Recycling sites in the valley are Dual-stream. This means that paper, cardboard, and commingle materials (recyclable plastics, glass, aluminum, etc) have to be separated into separate containers. All drop sites will have 2 or more containers labeled with which materials can be disposed of in each container. If you are interested in utilizing the valley’s composting program, contact Vail Honeywagon to sign up for their community compost drop site program. Recycling on the go?
