Introducing the Official Eagle County Recycling Guide
The Climate Action Collaborative is launching our first Bi-Annual Recycling Education Blitz for the Eagle County Community. We are spelling out in perfect clarity (with pictures included) what can ALWAYS go in your recycle bin and what can NEVER EVER go in your recycle bin. We’ll also include some info on those sneaky things that can sometimes maybe be recycled if you’re wearing a blue shirt, it’s a Tuesday, and it’s not raining (JK I promise it doesn’t get that complex). And we'll let you know every 6 months if there have been any changes to the rules, so you can keep on top of your recycling game!
