In support of America Recycles Day, Eagle County Solid Waste & Recycling will offer free recycling of electronic waste to county residents from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Wolcott. The facility is located next to the Eagle County Landfill at 815 Ute Creek Rd. Proof of residency must be provided at time of drop off.
Electronic waste from businesses will be excluded from the free recycling day. These items will be accepted for the regular fee of 20 cents per pound.
The America Recycles Day event supports the goals of the Climate Action Plan for the Eagle County Community. In addition, the Environmental Policy Statement adopted by the Board of County Commissioners prioritizes diverting waste and increasing recycling, along with reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting wildlife habitat, conserving water and adopting renewable energy sources.
The Eagle County Household Hazardous Waste Facility hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. except holidays.
