About Yard

Most recyclable materials can be recycled at the curbside by Town of Eagle residents living in single-family or small multi-family housing. Businesses and those living in large housing complexes must use the drop-off center located at the Town of Eagle Public Works Facility at 1050 Chambers Avenue or make special arrangements with one of the local haulers. Additional services for hazardous materials are provided at the Eagle County Landfill. The alphabetical list below shows where different materials can be recycled. Information on recycling other products can be found at Earth 911.

What and How to Recycle

Curbside Recycling
Place the materials in the "YES" column in the bins provided by Vail Honeywagon, 3 feet from the trash bin and the curb at 8 am on the day of service. Make sure the materials are secured and will not fly away. Recycling will be picked up on the same day as your trash but every other week.

Precycling: Going Beyond Recycling

  • Refuse: Being constantly surrounded with advertisement it is easy to fall into an endless consumption pattern. Before buying something, take a minute (or the recommended 30 days for large purchases) and decide if you really need the item. To not have to worry about how to dispose of a product consider not buying it in the first place. Try to avoid single use items. Also consider investing in products that can be recycled, are made locally, and are environmentally friendly.
  • Reduce: For the products that you do need, find ways to use less of them. The most obvious practices include running the dishwasher and laundry machines only when they are full in order to minimize your use of detergent, water, and energy as well as reducing the amount of paper you go through by printing less and using both sides of the paper.
  • Reuse: Like the first 2 Rs, reusing is not only good for the environment, but can also save you money. Using old clothes for rags is the easiest example. Reusing a coffee can as a flower pot is more imaginative. See how creative you can get.
  • Recycle: This is one of the most common and easiest environmental practices with significant benefits (see below). Nevertheless, Colorado recycles only 10% of its waste, while Iowa and Oregon are at 32% and 36% respectively. Let's catch up! The above list of recyclable materials provides information on where and what can be recycled.
    Re-buy: By buying recycled goods you close the loop in the life cycle. Pick products with the recycling logo and the highest percentage of 'post-consumer content' in the packaging. Office and toilet paper, packing materials, aluminum cans, tissues, and plastic bottles are all commonly made of recycled materials. Also, shop at garage sales, thrift stores, and sites such as Craigslist.

Benefits of Recycling 

If you still need to be convinced that recycling is the right thing to do, please consider that every ton of paper recycled saves 17 trees, and for every ton of steel recycled, 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone are conserved.In addition, recycling reduces the amount of material that is deposited into our not bottomless landfill. This not only leaves more room for real trash, but also reduces the amount of greenhouse (global warming) gasses, such as CO2 and methane, that are emitted by the landfill.Another important benefit is that recycling takes less energy than land-filling. Energy saved from recycling 1 glass bottle can light a light bulb for 4 hours. So recycling also reduces our dependence on foreign oil. Finally, over a million jobs in the United States are in recycling, making recycling not just an important environmental habit, but also a positive economic decision.

Trash & Recycling Service

The Town handles billing of trash service, however we contract out trash service to Vail Honeywagon. They use an automated truck designed to pick up Town designated cans only. All trash must be in these cans, otherwise extra trash will be picked up for a $15 fee. Cardboard it can be taken to the recycling bins at the Public Works office located at 1050 Chambers Ave. You may receive a second trash can for an additional $20.20 a month if 1 can is not adequate. Only on a case by case basis will we evaluate a speical pickup.
