Curbside Recycling Pick-Up:

We are excited to now offer curbside recycling pick-up! To add this service for $15 a month, call our office at 970-731-4892.


Recycling collection days are on the second and fourth weeks of the month on your regular trash collection day. 


Corrugated cardboard needs to be flattened and placed beside the cart; aluminum cans, paper, plastic, and tin cans all go together in the cart provided.


As with the trash, please have your recycling out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. A separate truck will pick up the recycling.

Things we DO accept:

  • Corrugated cardboard - all boxes must be flattened

  • Aluminum cans


  • Newspaper

  • Magazines

  • Catalogs

Electronics can be recycled at our recycling center for a fee of $0.70 per pound. These need to be brought to our office at 128 Bastille to be weighed, and cannot be put in curbside recycling containers. (Cathode ray tubes (CRT's) and circuit boards found in TV's and computers contain signigicant amounts of lead, chromium, silver, and many other toxic material, so State Law mandates they be recycled.)
